MILWAUKEE (WITI) — 25-year-old Keithany Brodie has pleaded not guilty. He’s accused in connection with a robbery and fatal shooting that took place outside a strip club near 26th and State.
The shooting occurred 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.
If convicted in the case against him, Brodie faces life in prison.
