Milwaukee Delivery Driver Fatally Shot in Tragic Incident
Milwaukee, WI – On January 10, tragedy struck when Antoine Gee Jr., a 33-year-old Domino’s delivery driver, lost his life in a shooting near Sherman Boulevard and Congress Street. The incident occurred around 10 p.m. while Gee was on duty delivering pizzas.
The Milwaukee Police Department acted swiftly, leading to the arrest of three 17-year-old suspects who are now facing charges of felony murder in connection to Gee’s death. The suspects have been identified as Armier McArthur, Keyshaun McNealy, and Damain Patrick, according to FOX.
The prompt apprehension of the three teenagers by Milwaukee authorities has resulted in each of them facing a single charge of felony murder. If convicted, they could potentially face a maximum prison sentence of up to 55 years.
The motive behind the shooting is still under investigation and has yet to be revealed.
According to a criminal complaint, the incident unfolded on the night of January 10 near Sherman Boulevard and Congress Street. A witness told the police that the three teens had planned to order a pizza in order to steal it. The witness reported hearing multiple gunshots and saw three younger males fleeing the scene. Gee was found lying in the median of Sherman Boulevard.
Surveillance footage from a nearby resident captured the entire incident. The video showed Gee arriving at Sherman and Congress to deliver the pizza. Minutes later, three individuals approached him. Gee can be seen grappling with two individuals on the sidewalk while a third person remains nearby, as reported by CBS.
As the confrontation escalated, gunshots rang out in the video. Gee and two people moved toward the median on Sherman Boulevard. More gunshots were heard, and the three individuals fled the scene, leaving Gee motionless. Moments later, additional gunshots were fired as the third person returned and charged at Gee.
The Milwaukee community is mourning the loss of Antoine Gee Jr., a hardworking family man. Gee’s uncle, Jerome Avery Sr., expressed the community’s sorrow, stating, “It’s senseless what they did. These are kids that did this. And you took away a good one for nothing. When you took him, you didn’t just ruin his life. You ruined a community.”
As the investigation continues, a GoFundMe page has been set up to gather contributions towards Gee’s funeral expenses. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office report revealed that Gee suffered three gunshot wounds.
The accused individuals, Armier McArthur, Keyshaun McNealy, and Damain Patrick, are scheduled for initial court appearances on January 19. McArthur’s cash bond is set at $250,000, while McNealy and Patrick’s bonds are set at $100,000 each.
