Milwaukee Bus Stop Murder

An incident that left one victim dead has been deemed random.  Police were initially hoping that the murder of an individual waiting at a bus stop was between two people who knew each other.  The reports now indicate that the shooting was random and the victim and the shooter did not know each other.

The investigation believes that some sort of verbal altercation broke out at the bus stop between the victim and shooter. Something was said, and the victim was then shot in the head.  The shooter then got on a bus to try and flee the scene.  Police stopped the bus several blocks away and found the man that they believed was responsible.

The investigation is underway to determine what sparked the shooting.  Charges are likely to soon to be filed against the man who was stopped on the bus.
