Jesus take the wheel: Tariq Akbar, 14, was shot and killed in Milwaukee, Wisc., on Friday in a dispute that started on Facebook over a girl, police say.
Akbar was gunned down just before 10:30 p.m. on July 3 in the 2200 block of N. Lake Drive.
WREG reports “Police Chief Ed Flynn says eight or nine shots were fired, with one of them hitting the teen.”
Flynn also expressed “frustration with the easy access young people have to firearms and their recourse to deadly violence over affronts,” WREG reports.
A person of interest has been arrested in Tariq Akbar’s shooting, the Milwaukee PD tweeted.
Tariq Akbar’s shooting death is the 77th homicide victim in Milwaukee for 2015. He is the sixth victim killed in 2015 who was 17 or younger.
