MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A 25-year-old Milwaukee man has been charged in connection to the robbery and fatal shooting that took place outside a strip club near 26th and State Street early Sunday morning, July 20th.  Police say 33-year-old Vincent Fayne of Milwaukee was shot around 2:15 a.m. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Keithany Brodie of Milwaukee is facing one count of first degree intentional homicide, one count of robbery (use of a dangerous weapon) and one count of possession of a firearm.

According to the criminal complaint, Brodie told police he approached Fayne on July 20th outside of Rickey’s , displayed a gun and demanded property after he saw Fayne dressed in “flashy” clothing and wearing a lot of jewelry.

Brodie told police he left Rickey’s Strip Club around closing time, obtained a gun from an unknown person while outside and approached Fayne. During that time, Fayne began to run, and a chase ensued.

During the chase, Brodie told police he fired the gun at Fayne numerous times before obtaining a phone and ring.

Surveillance video obtained by Milwaukee police shows a person with the approximate size of Brodie chasing a person who appears to be Fayne on July 20th around 2:15 a.m. The video appears to show Brodie catching Fayne, pointing a gun at him and taking property from him.

When police arrived on scene, they found Fayne’s body on a sidewalk outside Rickey’s Strip Club.

An autopsy found that Fayne suffered six gunshot wounds — five to his back and one to his side.

Brodie made his initial appearance in court on Sunday, July 27th, and a bond of $150,000 was set.  He is due back in court on August 6th for a preliminary hearing.

    He should get 1 year for each year between his kids current age and their legal adult age(21) for taking away a good involved father! So if one kid is 5 example: 21-5=16 years time and if another kid is 9 – add another 12 years to that for a total of 28 years jail time!!!!

    Wow. He chased the victim and shot him in the back repeatedly until he succumbed. ..for a phone and ring?! So very glad that someone so heartless is off the streets now. On another note, I hope they find the other guy…the one who gave him the gun moments before this happened.

    If this state had the death penalty…this would be one the few times I’d support it. Chasing a man who’s running for his life and shooting him in the back 5 times? This piece of trash doesn’t deserve to live any longer.
