WEST ALLIS -- A 14-year-old boy was arrested Sunday, February 12th in connection with a double shooting/homicide that happened at a home in West Allis.
It all began around 10:00 a.m. at a home near 89th and Becher.
Police said a 19-year-old man from West Allis was shot and killed, and a 17-year-old boy from West Allis was hurt -- and taken to a hospital.
The 14-year-old was arrested around 2:00 p.m. at his home near 84th and Beloit after a standoff. Law enforcement officials from multiple agencies surrounded the home with guns drawn.
"You can see just police barricading the whole neighborhood over here," Chris Paul, owner of Capri Italian Restaurant said.
During the standoff, Jennifer Mattson was worried about her friends who live in the home that was surrounded by law enforcement.
"This is crazy! Unbelievable. Like, wow! Thank God the baby is OK, and the mom's OK!" Mattson said.
FOX6's cameras captured a woman carrying an infant from the suspect`s home to the church next door. Two others also exited the home. Police said detectives were interviewing all of these individuals -- but they are not considered suspects.
Police said the 14-year-old murder suspect eventually came out of the home with his hands in the air.
The shooting happened next door to Ken Rappette's home.
"We saw someone pulled out on a gurney. He was...blood from top to bottom. It's terribly frightening, to tell you the honest to God truth," Rappette said.
The circumstances surrounding this incident are under investigation.
Police said this investigation is "active and ongoing."
