Man Charged with Fatal Shooting

A 33-year-old Milwaukee man was charged with fatally shooting his 39-year-old cousin Tuesday. He faces charges of first-degree homicide.

They allegedly began arguing after the 39-year-old went to his cousin's house to pick up some documents. The 33-year-old went back into his house mid-argument, then returned to the street where they had squared off. The 33-year-old then pulled out a handgun and shot his cousin. The 39-year-old died at the scene.

Shortly after, the 33-year-old was arrested at his house after a short struggle with the police. If convicted, he could face prison for life.
