A 13-year-old boy died this morning after he was shot on the street near his home.
Preliminary information is that the boy was confronted on the street near 19th & Orchard this morning at 9:48 a.m. by his 75-year-old neighbor, who pulled out a gun and shot him. The suspect is in custody. We have recovered his weapon. The boy was not armed.
Milwaukee Police are investigating whether there was a history of neighbor disagreements between the suspect and victim. Preliminary indications are that the Castle Doctrine does not apply in this case. The investigation is in its early stages and there is no more information at this time.
