Update: Mark Washington also charged with felony murder in the death of Cornelius Turner.

 Update: 2/18/2014 19 year old Mark Washington has also been charged with felony murder in the death of Cornelius Turner.
Mark Washington is one of the 3 young men that participated  the robbery of the beer truck. He was able to flea the scene. He reportedly told someone of his involvement and the police caught up to him later.

 Update 2/15/2014:  Caleb Seay-Ali decided that on his first day working for the beer company, it would be a good idea to have Cornelius Turner rob the truck driver while Caleb played one of the victim. Sadly, it resulted in the death of Cornelius Turner, shot by M.P.D. after allegedly reaching in his waistband and pulling a Glock.

Now, MPD is charging Caleb Seay-Ali with felony murder in the death of his friend.

Jan 31st Update: Police have identified man shot and killed by MPD as 19 yr. old Cornelious Turner.

"Officers caught up with one suspect, who was armed with a gun in a backyard down the block. That’s when a fight ensued."

Original article: "A nine year veteran responding to a possible robbery shot and killed a man when the man pulled out a glock during a struggle.

Chief Flynn defended the officer.

“During the struggle, the suspect reached into his waistband and pulled a loaded, semi-automatic black Glock pistol. The officer, fearing for his life, pulled out his sidearm and shot the suspect,” Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said."

 “This is a circumstance where there was literally no alternative, and the officer had no option but to defend his life,” Chief Flynn said.
