A 17-year-old Milwaukee boy has been charged in connection with the murder of a West Allis business owner who police believe was fatally shot during a robbery more than two years ago.
Charged by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office with felony murder-party to a crime was William E. Beene. The 17-year-old was charged as an adult, West Allis Police Chief Michael Jungbluth said.
Ever since the Aug. 15, 2009, shooting, West Allis police have been investigating the case in which Damon Adams, who was 36 at the time, is believed to have been shot at his business, Dame's Spot, 1031 S. 60th St., a sports memorabilia and urban clothing/shoe store. Police said it appears that Adams was shot during a robbery at the business and then fled on foot. He collapsed at 1109 S. 60th St. and later died, police said.
Police arrested Beene on Dec. 30. More arrests in this homicide are expected, police said, as they continue their investigation.
