Teen charged after robbery victim kills alleged accomplice

A Milwaukee teenager was charged Friday in a companion's shooting death, which allegedly occurred as they robbed an armed man.

According to a criminal complaint, the robbery target, who was wounded, told police he holds a legally issued concealed-carry permit and that his 5-year-old son was with him when the two robbers confronted him with a gun.

Jovan Williams, 18, was charged with felony murder in the Oct. 19 death of Zaire J. Burris, 18, who was shot in the 3100 block of N. 27th St.

According to the complaint:

The robbery victim, who shot Burris, told investigators he is an automobile dealer and was sitting in his car waiting for his uncle to return from a test drive with a potential customer. The man's 5-year-old son was asleep in the front passenger seat when Williams tapped on the window with a .45 caliber handgun and ordered him to "give them all his stuff."

Williams held the gun to the man's head and took money from him before Burris asked Williams for the gun because he was going to kill the man.

As Williams was passing the gun to Burris, their victim pulled out a .40 caliber handgun and backed up his vehicle before he was shot in the elbow.

He then began firing at Burris and Williams while getting out of the car and moving away from the vehicle so his son would not be struck by return fire.

Burris, who was shot multiple times, fled before collapsing in the 2800 block of W. Burleigh St. He was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, where he was pronounced dead, according to the complaint.

One more Scum thug gone, another on going to prison to be "bubba bait!"

Black Trash. Black women don't know how to raise their kids at all. It's a real shame. Black women mothers are to blame for all the black males and black females in prisons. Black morthers are to blame for their children not knowing correct english. Black women mothers don't have enough sense to tell their kids to put a belt on. Black mothers are to blame for their kids being racist. 73% fatherless household rate in black society. Why can't a black woman keep a man? Black women should be held accountable for the high prison rate amongst blacks. Why? Because they don't know how to raise their kids. Black women mothers are the shame of society. Yes I am very glad they are killing each other off. Another gang punk dead -- I'm gonna have a party right now baby I love it !!!!
