Man accused in fatal Burger King shooting turns self in

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Derrick Ellis, the man accused of fatally shooting a 16-year-old girl during what officials say was a "staged" armed robbery at a Milwaukee Burger King, turned himself in. 

According to Milwaukee police, Ellis turned himself in Tuesday, Jan. 18, at MPD District 1. 

Court records show Ellis was booked into the Milwaukee County Jail.

A criminal complaint says Ellis appeared to be firing towards the man at the drive-thru window who was attempting to rob the cashier.

During the confrontation, Ellis' coworker, 16-year-old Niesha Harris Brazell, was fatally struck by gunfire. Police say Ellis then fled the scene.
