[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.

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]
