Man killed during attempted robbery at Milwaukee-area store

FOX POINT, WI (WTAQ) - Police in suburban Milwaukee are questioning two persons of interest, after a man was shot to death at a strip mall Thursday.

Police were called just after noon to Innovative Optique, where a shooting occurred in the midst of an attempted robbery.

The store is in Bayside, but much of the strip mall where it's located is in Fox Point -- so Fox Point Police are taking the lead in the investigation.

Officials said the owner and one other employee were in the store at the time. The victim's name was not immediately released.

Around mid-afternoon, a woman ran toward the store and yelled that the victim was her son. Police stopped her.

Officers waited more than six hours for a search warrant, and then went into the store Thursday night to gather evidence and get the victim to an autopsy.

An employee of a nearby store said he heard 4 to 12 gunshots between 11:45 a.m. and noon.
