Charges Filed in Sunday's Triple Homicide

The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has issued charges regarding the triple homicide on Sunday. 

Dan Popp has been charged with three counts of First Degree Intentional Homicide and one count of Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide.  

He shot and killed three victim Sunday, March 6 at a residence in the 3300 block of South 92nd Street around 5:45 PM.

The victims in the March 6 homicide in the 3300 block of S. 92nd Street were identified as Jesus R. Manso-Perez, Phia Vue, and Mai K. Vue.  

According to the complaint, Popp dragged one of the victims and her two daughters out of the apartment. The two children witnessed their mother and father being killed.

Another victim’s son watched his father being shot. Popp raised a long gun, pointed it at his father, stated “You guys got to go” and shot his father, who was no more than 10 feet from the man, in the head. 

A window was the only escape for a son trapped inside his own home by a shooter. 

"I'm still in shock. I feel like I'm in a dream."

Carie Ferkovich is still reeling from news of three victims shot inside an apartment complex. A neighbor said the Vue's son, Alex, ran to her house for help after the 39-year-old shooter forced them into a room.

Carie Ferkovich says, "He made them all go in the back bedroom and stay in there. They took his dad in the bathroom and shot him, and then they had the mom and two of his sisters go upstairs. That's when Alex went out the window and came to my house."

Ferkovich says after calling 9-1-1 her and Alex heard another round of shots.

Ferkovich says, "They made his mom and a couple of kids go upstairs, and they said no. But he showed his gun, it was big, and said you better. So the mom and kids went upstairs, and I think that last shot, was the mom."

Police say the male shooter was from Milwaukee and is in custody waiting for charges. A rifle and a handgun were also recovered. Police say they lived in the same building as the man in custody and say the shooting wasn't random but they're investigating a clear motive.

Ferkovich says, "They were very nice, I have no idea why they shot him. I have no idea."

All she knows, is a son was so desperate, he leapt from a window to try and save their lives. CBS 58's Sarah Barwacz will have the full story on the CBS 58 News at 4 and 5.
