Milwaukee man charged in Appleton police shooting incident
APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — A Milwaukee man faces multiple counts for his alleged involvement in a fight that ended with police shooting another man in an Appleton bar.
A criminal complaint provides some details about what led to the fatal shooting.
The complaint says 33-year-old Henry Nellum and another man got into a fight at Jack's Apple Pub early Sunday when Nellum pulled out a gun, which went off.
Appleton Police Chief Todd Thomas says that when officers arrived, Lt. Jay Steinke saw a man with a gun and fired at him. Steinke shot and killed 33-year-old Jimmie Sanders, who was also from Milwaukee.
Nellum faces multiple charges, including attempted first-degree intentional homicide. Court records show he is represented by the public defender. A message left at that office after business hours wasn't returned.
