On Monday, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn once again blamed the Wisconsin Concealed Carry Permit Law for his city’s skyrocketing gun violence.

These are the following cases the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has listed for 2015 homicides committed with a firearm in which an arrest was made. Of the 125 gun homicides, police only made arrests in 49 cases – 44 of which meet the criteria for homicides.

Each one was investigated to see if they could have potentially been committed by WI concealed carry permit holders.

CONCLUSION: 

  • 15 of the suspects arrested in these murders were under the minimum age requirement for a concealed carry permit in the State of Wisconsin
  • 22 of the suspects were felons illegally in possession of a firearm
  • 2 were ruled self-defense
  • 2 were ruled justified self-defense
  • 4 could possibly have been committed by a concealed carry permit holder

Here are my findings:

*Jan. 2, 2015 – Jeffrey White & Michael L. Taylor

Sir D. Leblanc, 24, was charged with first-degree reckless homicide-party to a crime and use of a dangerous weapon in the death of Jeremy T. Green, 33, The shootout involved half a dozen men outside a north side tavern early April 5 at Comments Lounge, 5219 W. Hampton Ave.

Aaron M. Harmon, 24, who was with a group of men engaged in a firefight with Leblanc, Green and another man, also was killed, the complaint says.

It was initially believed that Harmon and Green fatally shot each other following an altercation inside the bar.

However, it was later determined that a 9mm handgun recovered from Harmon was not fired during the incident, according to the complaint.

The video then shows Leblanc pulling out a handgun from his sweat shirt pocket and firing at Harmon’s group, including one gunshot that coincides with Green reacting as if he was shot in the back and collapsing.

Both Green, who was shot in the back and left thigh, and Harmon, who was shot in the neck and forearm, died at the scene, where investigators recovered 25 bullet casings.

Leblanc was found guilty of 2nd-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety.

Swan Road when witnesses say Woods, drunk and belligerent, got in Patterson’s face, “mumbling negative and threatening things”. Patterson drew a snub-nosed revolver from his pocket and shot Woods in the chest.

Because of his conviction on a 1995 burglary charge, Patterson could not legally possess a firearm. Patterson was found guilty of 1st-Degree Reckless homicide and the charge of Felon in Possession of a Firearm was dismissed.

April 14, 2015 – Michael C. Powell-Gray

A pair of brothers, Aaron Jones, 26, and Aric D. Jones, 24, were each charged with second-degree intentional homicide as a party to a crime in the death of Michael Conte Powell-Gray. Aric Jones, who has a juvenile conviction for hit-and-run causing death, was additionally charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal reports:

In an interview with detectives, Aric Jones said he knew he would get in trouble for the gun because it was not registered to him. He said he bought it off the street for $400.

During the same interview, Aric Jones was asked if he was not home and his brother was not in the house, why he didn’t call police first.

Aric Jones paused and said that was a good question. He then told detectives he wanted to make sure there was someone in his house and that he “didn’t mean to” kill Powell-Gray.

Investigators said their review of the scene showed bullet damage in various parts of house, which led them to believe the brothers probably chased Powell-Gray, firing multiple shots before cornering or finding Powell-Gray inside a bathroom and shooting him in the chest.

Aric D. Jones pleaded guilty to Homicide by Negligent Handling of Dangerous Weapon/Explosive and the charge of Possession of Firearm by Felon was dismissed.
Aaron Jones pleaded No Contest to one count of Adjudged Delinquent Possess Firearm and found guilty and the charge of 2nd-Degree Intentional Homicide was dismissed on the prosecutor’s motion.

“I heard what could have been a gunshot. I’m not sure. Could have been a tire blown out — and I heard a loud crash. It was real loud. I didn`t know what it was, to be honest with you. I just heard a loud smash,” Martin Winiarski said.

As Krimmer drove on I-894, possibly near Loomis Road, Scholz shot Radtke, the complaint says, adding that Krimmer pulled off the freeway on the city’s south side, near S. 9th St. and W. Hayes Ave., and they pushed Radtke’s body out of the car.

May 1, 2015 – Montrell Burdine & Damario Jones

Shortly after 1 a.m. on May 1, 2015, a family dispute turned into a shootout on the city’s north side that left two men dead and three wounded in the 3700 block of N. 37th St.

According to criminal complaints, approximately 40 people were in the area when the fight started between Loggins and Jones.

Family members said their fight stemmed from an earlier incident in which Loggins punched Jones’ father, who is dating Loggins’ mother, the complaint says.

One witness told police said she saw Granville pointing what appeared to be a gun and firing about 8 times, adding that “she could hear the sound of the gun being fired and see the recoil on the gun causing Granville’s arm to move.”

Another witness told police that he saw Granville chasing Burdine while holding a gun in his hand and yelling, “I’m gonna kill em.”

All charges against Granville were dismissed.

The owner of the building told them (the customers) to leave and at one point threatened the group with a gun, saying he was “going to air this (car) out like Swiss cheese,” according to one of the witnesses. The owner later told police he had only responded to a disturbance at his building and then told those involved to calm down or leave.

Minutes later, the scene erupted in gunfire. Battle was found shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the witnesses who had been arguing with Battle’s landlord told police that Morehead had been hiding in the bushes and fired his gun toward the building, toward Battle.

If convicted, Morehead faced a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison, however, the 1st-Degree Reckless Homicide charge against Morehead was dismissed on the court’s motion.

The next day, what originally was planned as a birthday barbecue for Walker’s mother, Debra Hopkins, turned into a vigil. Walker’s family had placed their balloons and started lighting candles when gunfire erupted.

Four people were charged with conspiring to kill John Spivey, who witnessed Eddie Powe’s murder.

The suspects went so far as to pay the bail of Spivey, who was locked up on unrelated charges, and were waiting outside the jail to grab him, but district attorney investigators got to him first, according to the criminal complaint.

Antonio “Tone” Smith, Lorenzo Beaton, Shantrell “Peanut” Lyons and Shaheem M. Smith were all charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree intentional homicide. Antonio Smith and Lyons also are charged with drug counts and Beaton, the alleged “triggerman,” faces gun counts.

Another witness to the homicide, Powe’s girlfriend Breanna Eskridge, 17, was slain eight days after Powe’s death.

Smith pleaded not guilty to killing Powe and is set for trial in March. His attorney, Dan Sanders, said Thursday he appeared with Smith on the new charges but had not been shown any discovery evidence yet and had no comment.

According to the criminal complaint, the new case arises out of the killing of the 35-year-old Powe on July 11 in the 2600 block of W. Port Sunlight Way. As paramedics tried to save him, Powe told police he was shot by “Tone,” Smith’s street nickname. Powe died of six gunshot wounds.

Spivey, who was at the scene, said Smith and Powe were arguing when Smith pulled a gun and shot Powe three times at close range and shot him three more times as he tried to flee. Smith, who also goes by the nickname “Hitman,” then casually walked to a minivan, got in and drove away, according to the complaint.

Eskridge also witnessed the shooting and held Powe after he was gunned down. A little more than a week later, she was dead. Her mother told police a love triangle was to blame for the slayings. Powe first dated Lyons and later Eskridge. Lyons then began dating Smith and is pregnant with his child, the complaint says.
