Unimaginable loss for family, unspeakable crime for city

Statement from Alderman Robert W. Puente December 29, 2014

I extend my sincere condolences to the parents and loved ones of 13-month-old Bill Thao, who died Saturday night after he was shot while inside a home in the 6400 block of N. 73rd St. A person or persons riddled the home with dozens of gunshots, and the result is an unimaginable loss for the family, and an unspeakable crime for our city.

Milwaukee Police Department investigators are working diligently to find the person or persons responsible for this cowardly and outrageous act of deadly violence, and I urge anyone with information about the shooting to contact the MPD at 414-935-7360.
