MILWAUKEE -- A suspect has been arrested and now charged with the homicide of Dalbir Singh. That suspect is 16-year-old Deangelo Williams. He faces two felonies -- first degree reckless homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Singh was fatally shot Wednesday night, August 15th at the Harmony Food Store near 38th and Locust. Authorities say Singh was shot around 9 p.m. during what appears to be an attempted armed robbery.

The criminal complaint against Williams says he confronted Singh and waved a gun at him. Singh and his nephew, Jatinder Singh, ran inside the store, slammed the door and tried to keep it shut to prevent Williams from getting in. 

The complaint indicates that as the Singhs were holding the door, "there was a gunshot from outside the door that penetrated the door and hit Dalbir Singh in the forehead."

Jatinder Singh told police Williams had been in the store just prior to the shooting. 

If convicted of the charges, Deangelo Williams faces up to 60 years in prison. Reports indicate on June 5, 2012 he was found guilty of felony robbery with use of force.

Dalbir Singh was a long-time member of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. Police say they do not believe this shooting had anything to do with the shooting at the Sikh Temple.
