Milwaukee – On Thursday, police arrested a senior citizen age 75 for fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy near the victims home at the 1900 block of W. Arrow St. The 75-year-old man who is the victim’s neighbor apparently confronted the teenager before 9:48 a.m. at the 2000 block of W. Greenfield Ave. on the sidewalk and after a brief altercation, the senior citizen pulled out a handgun and fatally shot the teen. The teen who was identified by a family friend as Darius Simmons was shot multiple times in the chest, but managed to run back to his residence on Arrow St. The teen was later pronounced dead at the Children’s Hospital.
The elderly man stayed at the scene and turned himself to police. The suspect’s handgun was recovered at the scene and the teenager was not armed when he was fatally shot by the elderly man, according to the Milwaukee Police Department Source.
A preliminary investigation indicates, that the 75-year-old man believed that the teenager had broken into the suspect’s home several days ago. Several shotguns worth at least $3,000 were reported stolen from the elderly man’s home.
The suspect had placed surveillance cameras shortly after his home was broken in and robbed. The elderly man saw the teen on Greenfield Ave. and approached him about the previous break-in into the suspect’s home.
The victim’s mother told police that the suspect had blamed her son for breaking into his home, but that her son was at school when it occured and claimed he was innocent, according to police.
Police haven’t released the name of the slain teen or the suspect. They continue to investigate the fatal incident that claimed the life of a teenager.

Madison – On Wednesday, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has confirmed that Wisconsin gained 23,608 jobs in 2011. An estimated 96% of the state employers or 160,000 employers quarterly tax and unemployement insurance reports to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) showed job increases.
John Dipko, DWD spokesperson said, the BLS made a slight change in the numbers that were sent to them earlier this month, finding 23,608 jobs were actually created in 2011, rather than the 23,321 jobs initially reported by the state.
Governor Scott Walker’s (R) administration is taking credit for the jobs increase in 2011. Walker’s re-election campaign spokesperson Ciara Matthews is now seeking for Tom Barrett, a Democratic candidate for governor to apologize for alleging that under Walker, the state had lost more than 33,000 jobs. Barrett’s campaign ads on television networks throughout the state have been attacking Walker on projected job losses.
