Milwaukee man charged in basketball court shooting
A 19-year-old Milwaukee man is charged in a shooting at a basketball court that left one man dead and four other people wounded.
Jovan Dart Newman was charged Tuesday with first-degree reckless homicide and a misdemeanor count of bail jumping in the Sept. 29 death of Alexander Cross.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Newman is accused of opening fire with a semiautomatic handgun on a group of men who were playing basketball. Also injured were three other players and a woman who was watching the game.
According to the complaint, Newman began shooting after a fight broke out involving some of the victims and a group of men who had had a dispute with Cross' family a week earlier.
