Hundreds gather at vigil for Milwaukee shooting victims

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Hundreds of people have gathered in Milwaukee to remember the three people who authorities say were shot to death by a neighbor at their apartment complex.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports family members, friends and supporters of Jesus Manso-Perez, Phia Vue and Mai Vue attended a candlelight vigil Sunday night in their honor.

Thirty-nine-year-old Dan J. Popp has been charged with three counts of first-degree intentional homicide in their deaths on March 6. He also faces a charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide because authorities said he shot at Manso-Perez’s 18-year-old son, Jesus Manso-Carrasquillo.

Police have said they are working to determine a motive.

The newspaper reports Mayor Tom Barrett extended condolences on behalf of the city during the vigil, and prayers were offered in English, Hmong and Spanish.
