Milwaukee man charged in basketball court shooting

MILWAUKEE (AP) - 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.

Online court records do not list a defense attorney.
