Two Milwaukee men have been arrested in regards to a homicide that took place on July 29 at 2100 West Greenfield Avenue. Two officers on bicycles over heard the gunshots and arrived on the scene shortly after the incident.
Nathan Binns is charged with first degree reckless homicide and attempted robbery. Dale Hall is charged with felony murder and bail jumping.
The officers on bicycles saw two males running from the scene. They yelled for defendants to stop and get down on the ground. Hall complied, but Binns continued to run.
Montravis Johnson was shot in the back of the neck and died from the single gun shot wound.
Binns told police he met up with Hall to rob someone for money and weed. According to Binns, the victim was \"flashing money.\" Hall approached the victim's car and asked the man why he was \"flexing money.\" Binns believed the victim was getting up to fight so he pulled a revolver from his waistband and shot through his sweatshirt.
He told police he purchased the firearm on the street, and he had last performed a robbery three months previously, according to the criminal complaint.
Hall told police he did not want to hurt the victim when he approached. That he was just trying to scare him. Hall had an open case for driving or operating without Owner's Consent and was on bail with the condition he didn't commit a new crime.
