McDonald’s shooting leaves 1 dead, 2 more injured

MILWAUKEE, WI – A Milwaukee man, Raymond Lee Willis, 42, has been formally charged with first-degree reckless homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Rosalind Rogers. The incident occurred in the early hours of June 13 in a McDonald’s parking lot located at Teutonia and Villard Avenues.

Upon arrival at the scene around 4 a.m., Milwaukee police discovered Rogers deceased. Surveillance footage provided critical insights into the events leading to her killing. The video captures Rogers walking along Villard Avenue when an older model vehicle approached her. As Rogers attempted to flee, the vehicle followed her into the McDonald’s parking lot. Flashes were seen coming from the driver’s side of the car, which were believed to be muzzle flashes. Rogers was then seen collapsing while the vehicle drove away.

An autopsy later confirmed that Rogers died from a gunshot wound to the head. Further investigations led police to additional surveillance footage showing the suspected vehicle outside a residence near 36th Street and Villard Avenue. The landlord of the property identified the vehicle as belonging to his tenant, Raymond Willis.

During questioning, Willis acknowledged he owned a vehicle matching the description seen in the videos but claimed he had sold it. However, contradicting Willis’s claim, a neighbor revealed to police that he had advised Willis to lie about selling the vehicle. Following this revelation, authorities arrested Willis.

The case is currently proceeding, with Willis facing serious charges stemming from the incident. The Milwaukee community and the family of Rosalind Rogers await justice in this tragic and senseless act of violence.
