A Milwaukee man was sentenced in September to life in prison after pleading guilty to a fatal shooting in 2021.

Another man, 25-year-old Santos Sollier, was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide in February. In April, he too was sentenced to life in prison, although he could have been eligible for extended supervision after 40 years.

On March 29, 2021, police responded to a report of a body in an alley. When officers arrived, they found a victim riddled with multiple bullets, who died at the scene.

The news station reported that investigators found 10 shell casings on the ground near the victim’s body, and that surveillance footage captured nearby showed two men shooting the victim.

Investigators spoke to a woman caught on surveillance talking with the men prior to the shooting. He told police that he and the victim ran into Bonds and Sollier at a bar, and that one of the suspects and the victim were arguing, although it never turned violent.
