MILWAUKEE COUNTY — A 20-year-old Milwaukee man, accused in the September 2014 fatal shooting of 39-year-old William Green which happened near 1st and Auer has reached a plea deal in the case against him.
Krishawn Brown on Monday, October 31st pleaded guilty to a felony charge of first degree reckless homicide (penalties for felonies — Class B felony).
Brown was remanded into custody pending his sentencing hearing, which has been set for February 10th, 2017.
Green’s family said he was playing cards near his garage when the shots rang out on September 27th, 2014.
According to the criminal complaint in this case, a witness told police he was with Green that night when they heard gunshots fired in the neighborhood. A short time later, a white car pulled up and stopped in front of Green’s garage. A person sitting on the passenger side of the car was “pointing a handgun at them.” The complaint indicates “Green put his hands in the air and then pointed south and stated ‘they went that way.'” The person with the gun then stated, “You lying… they in the garage.”
A few moments later, the complaint indicates the car drove east about a half block from the garage and stopped once more. Then the passenger in the car “fired three to four shots in their direction.” Green fell to the ground– and indicated he was hit.
The complaint indicates several witnesses positively identified the shooter in this case as Krishawn Brown. Officers also had a positive ID on the car that was involved in the crime — that included the license plate number for the vehicle.
