Help needed to solve teens’ homicides

Statement from Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs July 23, 2015

By - Jul 23rd, 2015 12:17 pm

In the midst of the stream of violent crime our city is facing, there have been two murders during this past week that have taken the lives of two teenagers, and I am hoping the community comes forward with information to help solve both cases. Both cases remain active, but Milwaukee police currently have no one in custody.

On Sunday night, 17-year-old Breanna Eskridge was shot several times on a porch of a home located at N. 12th St. and W. Concordia Ave. Police reported that she was apparently targeted by the person or persons who took her life.

On Tuesday night, 19-year-old Angelo Young was shot in the 200 block of E. Garfield Ave. during an apparent robbery. Angelo, a recent graduate of Rufus King High School, was reportedly on his way home from work.

Please help these families gain some closure. Anyone who has information about either of these homicide cases is urged to call Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360.
