2 arrested in June cemetery shooting in Racine

RACINE, Wis. — A 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy have been arrested following a shooting at a cemetery in Racine in early June that left two people injured.

In a news release Friday, the Racine Police Department said officers arrested the duo Thursday following an “extensive and thorough investigation” into the June 2 shooting at Graceland Cemetery and another shooting a short time later in the 2800 block of Wright Avenue.

Each faces 26 charges of first-degree recklessly endangering safety as a party to a crime and two counts of first-degree intentional homicide – attempted as a party to a crime.

Police said a funeral for Da’Shontay King, the man a Racine police officer fatally shot in May, was happening at the cemetery at the time of the shooting.
