Three dead, one injured in Brown Deer shooting
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that three people were killed in the shooting at an apartment complex in Brown Deer.
The newspaper reports that a 31-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were killed in the shooting, alongside a 26-year-old suspect. The suspect is believed to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and lived in the apartment complex where the shooting took place.
A 36-year-old man was injured in the shooting, but survived. A child who was in the apartment was not injured and is now with family members, according to the MJS.
Brown Deer Police Chief Peter Nimmer said the incident began as a “domestic dispute” between two people.
At a press conference, Nimmer said police were sent to Park Plaza Court after a report of shots being fired with a potential victim in the car park at 10.09am. He said police were shot from the second floor of the Park Plaza apartments, but no officers were injured or returned fire.
An investigation into the shooting is ongoing and, as of this writing, police have yet to name the suspect.
Facebook Profile Larvell Huddleston Live Filming
Heavy reports that a Facebook page under the name Lavrell Huddleston live-streamed the shooting.
The Facebook page has since been taken down, but the outlet reports that authorities were able to view the live stream.
Police Chief Nimmer confirmed, “I was informed there was a live stream on Facebook.”
Nimmer said authorities were “not sure” the suspect in the shooting was the same man who posted the video on Facebook Live.
Heavy further reports that relatives of the man behind the Facebook profile have identified him as a rapper known as Velle Vell.
As the investigation continues, authorities have now deemed the compound secure, with no continued threat and no other suspects are wanted.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Criminal Investigations Division and Crime Lab are also assisting in the investigation.
