Suspect in Racine County fatal shooting in custody

54-year-old man dies at hospital

The Racine County Sheriff’s Office  said a suspect is in custody in Missouri in last weekend’s shooting death of a 54-year-old man in the Town of Yorkville in southeastern Wisconsin.

Sheriff Christopher Schmaling said Friday the suspect is being held on an unrelated Wisconsin Department of Corrections warrant. 

He will be extradited back to Wisconsin where he’ll be formally arrested in connection with last Sunday’s shooting death of Robert Greene. 

Schmaling said his office will recommend to the Racine County District Attorney that the suspect be formally charged with homicide. 

The sheriff’s office had said Greene was staying with friends at the location of the shooting, which took place early Sunday morning. 

According to Schmaling, the investigation is ongoing.
