Man Shoots Brother For Wearing His Clothes
Victim was transported via Flight for Life after being shot in the femur.
A Menomonee Falls man is facing charges after he allegedly shot his brother with a shotgun inside a Brown Deer home because he was upset about him wearing his clothes and jewelry.
Duvante A. Taylor, 20, was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday with one count first-degree reckless endangerment of safety and bail jumping. If convicted, he faces up to 13 years in prison and $35,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Taylor and his brother were inside a home in the 6100 block of West Donges Lane Monday when he became upset with his brother for wearing his clothes and jewelry. Taylor then grabbed a 12 gauge shotgun and shot his brother in the femur while he was inside his bedroom.
The victim had to be taken to the hospital via Flight for Life due to the severity of his injuries. His brother did survive, however.
Taylor is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on $5,000 cash bond.
