A 28-year-old man was arrested Friday night in connection with the fatal shooting of a cook inside an east side George Webb restaurant, police said.
The man is suspected of killing Reginald T. Evans, 21, about 2 a.m. Friday at the restaurant at 2935 N. Oakland Ave., according to a Milwaukee Police Department news release.
Police say Evans was attempting to assist a beleaguered waitress who was dealing with a crowd of rowdy patrons. A member of the group left the restaurant, returned with a handgun and shot Evans in the chest.
28-year-old Delorean Bryson has been charged in the incident — and FOX6 News has learned he is a convicted felon — and therefore should have never had a gun.
Bryson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon in the case.
Three other people are also charged in connection with this case. Oliver Kennedy faces a felony charge of harboring or aiding a felon. Joycelyn Long and Schalanda Long are each charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
