Milwaukee woman faces charges for shooting and killing her rival

Twenty-year-old Milwaukee, Wisconsin resident Tequila Cole was charged with first-degree intentional homicide on December 15 after allegedly shooting and killing 23-year-old Alonna Thomas to settle a score, the Journal Sentinel reported.

According to witness accounts, Cole and Thomas had been planning on physically engaging each other in a fight the night of the shooting. The two reportedly had a long-term rivalry, as Cole’s boyfriend was the father of Thomas’ child. The two showed up at a designated spot, began arguing, and Cole took out a gun. Thomas, shot, ran to a car and was brought to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.

The two drivers who helped Cole leave the scene have been charged as accomplices to the homicide.
