Man who Allegedly Fatally Shot Woman on West Villard Avenue Appears in Court

Frank Lopez was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on a reckless homicide charge for the fatal shooting of Audrea Williams in Milwaukee at the end of March. 

His attorney has argued Lopez is bipolar and suffers from schizophrenia. 

A judge ordered a doctor's examination for Lopez. 

That report is due on May 2.

Williams was killed on March 30 in the 8100 block of West Villard Avenue.

Williams died from one gunshot wound to the left side of the head.

According to a statement from a witness, Williams was overheard telling Frank Lopez she needed her keys.

At the scene, police told CBS 58 she was shot during a domestic violence situation.

According to the criminal complaint, one witness said she heard screaming and yelling and she ran out into the living room. Lopez told her, “I didn’t do nothing, she shot herself.”

Based on the autopsy, police believe it is highly unlikely she shot herself.

Another witness said Lopez came out yelling, “I just shot my baby’s mama. I can’t lose my baby’s mama.”
