I am asking for the public’s help to find those responsible for the murder of an innocent young man who was killed when shots were fired into his home back in August.

According to Milwaukee Police, Roniel L. Sylvester, 26, was killed on August 1 at approximately 3:07 a.m., on the 3400 block of N. 47th Street in the 7th Aldermanic District. Suspects fired several shots into the Sylvester’s residence subsequently striking Roniel. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Roniel was a young man of promise, and his loved ones and friends have been devastated by his senseless murder. My prayers of condolences and wishes for peace continue to be directed toward his family and friends.

Please help catch the suspect or suspects responsible for Roniel’s murder by providing information as soon as possible. Through Milwaukee Crime Stoppers a tip leading to an arrest could be worth $1,000.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-TIPS or P3 Tips App for a cash reward.
