[su_right_ad]Milwaukee police have arrested a 27-year-old in the December 27 shooting ofo Bill Thao, 1.

The young victim was shot and killed as he and his mother visited a family’s home near 73rd and Mill Road on December 27. Police said dozens of shots were fired from the street into the residence, striking the 13-month-old boy. He was conscious and breathing when he was taken to the hospital, but later died of his injuries. One bullet cut a major artery in his back. Ballistics show that multiple guns were used and because of that,  police believe more than one person may be involved.

Chee Thao was in his bedroom next door when he heard the shots. “[It] opens your eyes about that kind of situation,” Thao said. You don’t really want to live here anymore if that kind of things happen.”

The victim’s father, Somboon Thao, pleaded for those responsible for the shooting to turn themselves in. “One second or one minute and my little happy son is gone forever,” Thao said…

1-year-old Bill Thao is the third child, ten years or younger, to be shot and killed in the City of Milwaukee during the past seven months.[su_csky_ad]

    Another case to be made for capital punishment. It wouldn’t bring back that precious baby, but it would eliminate the possibility of the shooter EVER doing something like that, again.

      while i understand your frustration, i’m against CP. this type of act will certainly ensure he’ll never see the “free light” of day. we’re talking about 1st degree murder and 1st degree “countless” attempted muder charges.

    The Hmong/Lao/Montagnard peoples suffered greatly for this nation during the Southeast Asian Indochina Conflict Police Action Policy. Moments like this make me think just how damn much are one peoples to suffer so the overly spoiled pampered self centered privileged smucks can have their luxurious carefree lifestyles. Bill Thao, Trayvon Martin and many other totally innocent children that have been murdered, wittingly or not, would have made one helluva Marine!
    you can see it in their eyes.
    our loss, nobody’s gain
    except the firearms/ammo industrial complex.
