MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police say a 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred Tuesday, January 5th near 10th and Lincoln.
Police say 40-year-old Michael Schafrik was shot and killed during an altercation.
The alleged shooter, a 14-year-old Milwaukee boy, was arrested as were another 14-year-old boy and a 33-year-old woman.
It’s believed an argument between the victim’s group and the suspect’s group preceded the shooting.
Orlando Pacheco witnessed this shooting, which happened around 4:30 p.m.
"We just came from here, and I live right around the corner. And then we came back, and we seen all this stuff. Like, 'oh, my God!' I was like, 'dang! I think it was gunshots!' There was a lot of running around and people looking around to see what`s going on. It's stupid. Why would an argument lead to killing somebody? People these days are not caring about anybody these days. They're not, you know?" Pacheco said.
MPD continues to investigate and will present the case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
This is the second homicide in the city of Milwaukee in 2016.
The first homicide in 2016 came Sunday, January 3rd. 45-year-old Deondrick Byrd was shot and killed near 6th and Wright.
