Milwaukee - On Thursday, a jury found Jesus Gonzalez, 24, guilty on lesser felony charges. He was convicted for first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree reckless injury for the May 8, 2010 homicide of Danny John, 29, and shooting of his nephew, Jered Corn, 22, at the 3300 block of W. National Ave. Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Richard Sankovitz ordered Gonzalez held in custody after the verdicts were read until his sentencing date on November 18. Judge Sankovitz also decided to revoked Gonzalez $100,000 bail without forfeiture, the cash bail will be returned to Gonzalez.
Gonzalez is facing up to 40 years in prison for the reckless homicide and up to 15 years for the reckless injury count.
Both John and Corn were drinking all day and had just left Mamie's tavern on W. National Ave. and S. Shea Ave. when an apparent altercation occured. John was driving his Honda Accord out of Mamie's tavern when Gonzalez fired his weapon at least seven shots hitting John four times and striking Corn in the neck paralyzing him for life.
Gonzalez didn't elaborate further on what actually happened for him to shoot both John and Corn. Corn during trial said, he was walking to a friend's house when Gonzalez approached him and told him to back up. Corn then woke up later and noticed his legs wouldn't move, couldn't get up and he was bleeding from the neck. John died at the scene inside his car.
Gonzalez called 911 and told the operator that he came out to moved his car and several men had tried to assault him and that he shot both of them. Gonzalez carried a weapon with him all the time, since he was first robbed.
Gonzalez had filed a lawsuit against several police departments after he was arrested for carrying an unconceal weapon at a store. He wasn't charged, but Gonzalez sued.
