MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- Four men have been arrested and charged in connection with an armed robbery turned homicide.

32-year-old Rebecca Wood was shot and killed on July 13th near 28th and Clarke.

Her father spoke with FOX6 News on Wednesday, August 10th, and said every day since his daughter's death has been a struggle -- but he said four arrests bring him one step closer to justice.

"It`s very, very, very hard," Greg Wood said. "I`m pretty much still in shock. I don`t even know what to say. She was a very beautiful girl."

Investigators say Wood was shot while in her vehicle.

According to a criminal complaint, 21-year-old Deanthony Bradley and three others wanted to rob her. A witness told investigators he saw Bradley with a weapon, and thought this was a drug deal.

Authorities say Bradley pointed a gun at Wood's head with his finger on the trigger. He told police when Wood tried to drive away, the gun went off -- and Wood was killed. An autopsy revealed she suffered two gunshot wounds -- one to the back and one to the chest -- wounds caused by one bullet, according to police.

After the shooting, Wood's vehicle crashed into a tree in the area.

"I had a meltdown. I just started bawling," Greg Wood said.

According to the complaint, after the shooting, a witness indicated one of the suspects went to Rebecca Wood's vehicle and took a purse -- apparently dropping it when a witness yelled at them.

The complaint says police found Rebecca Wood's purse and a $20 bill near her body at the scene. A $10 bill was later found at the scene, with blood on it.

" I hope they get what...everyone one of them gets what they have coming to them. The guy that did it, he ruined lots of lives," Greg Wood said.

According to the complaint, after the fatal shooting, Bradley posted on Facebook that he had to “cut his fro and get low.”

Rebecca Wood left behind two children, and an entire family heartbroken over the loss.

"She was my baby," Greg Wood said.

Wood said he is incredibly grateful for the work of the Milwaukee Police Department in investigating this case.

A fundraiser will be held on September 11th to benefit Rebecca Wood's two children at Smitty's on the Edge at 14015 N. Cedarburg Road in Mequon.

    Someone please , just once, ask yourself* what was she buying 💨crack or 💨black tar-💨#smack- 💨 dog food❔

    • Cid Campeador

      She WAS WHITE. They have Carte Blanche to do whatever strikes their fancy. Get ready for a visit by Al Sharpton.

  • Angry Dad

    Reverse the races and it would be national news and Obama would speak out on it. If Michael Brown were white, you would not know his name… inconvenient fact for black racist BLM terrorists.

  • Libsareliars

    So I made a comment about why this is not a hate crime and fox6 deletes it? Really??? You bunch of hypocritical morons!!!


    Very sad, sickening, no one deserves this kind of death. Bunch of soft ass boys who will never understand what it takes to be a real man. However it’s ironic how many comment on the crimes on this side of town and people keep their mouths shut or always drug and gang related? Some of those victims are innocent, just like this white girl, although I think Its pretty safe to say this girl chose her path to an early death sentence. I find it hard to believe she’s down there for nothing else but drugs, its a lose lose situation playing that game. Only time you every see white people on the Northside just about, stick out like a sore thumb.

    Why isn’t this considered a hate crime..maybe we should March on the streets and free ways…this screams for justice…oh wait us folks.with jobs us white folks with jobs can’t of work day like the Hamiltons of the world..we have bills to pay and families and taxes to pay..the Hamiltons of the world live off the government..and expect everything and don’t want to work figure

  • Chrisco

    That is a good point. That is no place for any civilized person other than early morning when they are still passed out.

    • Tyrone

      Please explain what’s is a Obama kid clearly none of there last name say Obama so more info plz i will like to understand where your coming from

  • Buster

    I’m not joking, it’s an honest and valid question given the present state of violence, drugs and gang activity in Milwaukee.

    • Hillarys pimp

      No. What’s really unbelievable is that this story is less than 24 hours old, and it’s a l ready at the very bottom of this page

      • Dalaino Kemp

        I’m not a part of th element…..
        But everybody on this post knows what they did was wrong….
        Hang em High…
        But you guys also know she was there to buy dope……
        Dope and death go hand in hand….
        Those guys deserve a firing squad………

    • Mark

      what makes these idiots the ‘new’ black panthers vs the regular black panthers. is this like what Coca Cola did when they tried to re-invent themselves and failed miserably? What makes them ‘new’? Do they have a cool walk now?

  • John Davis

    Where is the outrage as the blacks continue to slaughter whites all across America?
    When will it be enough before you people wake up and realize these so called people are NOT compatible to live in a white civilization?

  • Cid Campeador

    That is NEVER going to happen.
    Our Cities with the highest violent crime rates are most all run by DEMONcrats.

  • Cid Campeador

    Does anyone notice that whenever there is a violent crime committed and the perpetrator is described by what he was wearing, usually turns out to be an Afro.. White perps are always identified as such.
    Barack pulled off a big attention diverter last week by having an FBI raid and arrest of 50+ Mob leaders. A big fuss was made about Joey “Skinny” Merlino and several other “Wise Guys” along with their nicknames.
    In the meantime the Muslim Terrorists are planning another attack somewhere and our DOJ is worried about the MAFIA.
    The Philadelphia Cosa Nostra also controlled illegal activities in Atlantic City as well. The areas of South Philadelphia and the “Ducktown” section of Atlantic City overseen by Nicodemo Scarfo (now doing time) were the safest places at any time of day or night. Italo-Americans were NOT the ones of whom to be afraid. Muggers and potential rapists “KNOWHAMSANE?” would be removed from the streets and never seen again.
    Things have changed now and those areas are now places to avoid after sunset.
    NYC was brought back by Rudy Giuliani to what used to be be. Now with De Blasio it’s in free fall again.
    Urination and defecation on the streets in now not punishable.

  • Cid Campeador

    IIve been totally freaked out by learning how violent Milwaukee is. I’ve never been there but I guess it was just a fantasy that a city in Wisconsin would be such a HELL HOLE.
    I guess the the rule is that wherever there are Afros there IS AFRICA.

    Kill these four and kill their families and make them wish they had never been born. Bulldoze their block and cover it in concrete with their burnt remains under it.

  • No More

    The government officials are the source of the problem. Just like in Austin, Texas, black male shoots four women in the entertainment district, killing one of them, and it turns out that in June he was let out of jail with no bond for a felon-with-gun conviction. Same thing in Savannah, Georgia, black male kicks in a door kidnaps and rapes two women, is convicted in a jury trial and two years later he is out of jail and back in the public.

  • Jenna Pickles

    and this is the cr*p the coddlers demand we put up with. I hope the family of the deceased hates these things for all of eternity and tells everyone in earshot why. My condolences. Your daughter/wife/Mommy deserved better.

  • Crakkka hater

    She was in the hood dope dating! Why don’t I hear you calling her white trash or disowning her?!! Oh because you do the same things! You crackers make me sick!
