A teenager found guilty in June, as a juvenile, of robbery was charged as an adult Friday with killing a man while trying to rob a grocery store on Milwaukee’s north side.
Deangelo Williams, who turned 16 April 23, was charged with being party to the crime of first-degree-reckless homicide, use of a dangerous weapon in the death of Dalbir Singh, 56.
Singh was shot to death Wednesday night at Harmony Foods, 3821 W. Locust St.
Williams was also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon because of being found guilty in juvenile court June 5 of robbery, use of force before Judge Pedro Colon.
The complaint does not indicate whether Williams was sentenced and court records from the case were not available Friday afternoon.
According to the complaint in the homicide case, Singh and the owner of the store were exiting the business through a rear door at closing time when Williams appeared waving a handgun.
The two men managed to get back inside and were holding the door shut when Williams shot through the door, striking Singh in the forehead, according to the complaint.
If convicted Williams could be sentenced to up to 70 years in prison.
