WAUKESHA COUNTY — One of the two men arrested after a 16-year-old Sussex boy was shot in an apparent drug deal gone bad was back in court for his preliminary hearing on Friday afternoon, June 3rd. The court, after hearing testimony, bound 22-year-old London White of Milwaukee over for trial.

Prosecutors say White shot the 16-year-old boy near the Bugline Trail because he was given an empty backpack instead of marijuana. He faces the following charges:

  • Attempted first degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon
  • Possession of a firearm — convicted out-of-state felony (dismissed on Friday, June 3rd)
  • Possession with intent to deliver THC — less than 200 grams, as party to a crime

White has been in custody since the early morning hours of May 16th — two days after the shooting.

Charges were filed against him on Wednesday, May 25th — the same day he made his initial appearance in court. Cash bond was set at $250,000.

Officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department said Bell was arrested on May 14th, shortly after the shooting.

    What about the friends of the victim? Thr ones who helped him conspire to buy drugs and steal from the drug dealers? When are they going to be charged. I thought the law was that anyone involved in a criminal action that resulted in homicide or attempted homicide is charged for that crime? Or is that everyone except Waukesha white kids. Apply the law equally or you’re gonna look real racist, Waukesha.

      Naw leigh you just look really ignorant and mentally dimented if you can’t see the difference between certain cases.
      Your comparing milwaukee thugs who help jack innocent people and our present while their partner in crime shoots a victom..compared to a few kids who were supposedly told about a “weed” jacking. Stop pulling the race card because that doesn’t work anymore you anti-white racist.

  • Are you high?

    People think that the kids who were told about the drug deal should be charged with what? Not telling the victom to stay away from “hood culture”?….
    (example) When two thugs rob a gas station and 1 thug murders the clerk, both thugs will be charged with homocide…but If a kid brags to local kids how he’s going to jack some thugs with criminal records during a drug deal and ends up getting shot himself , those local kids are breaking no law.. You are delusional and should stop using drugs if you can’t see the difference here.
