Maintenance worker arrested in alleged self-defense killings released

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A maintenance worker who allegedly killed two teenagers during an attack in his Milwaukee apartment building was freed Friday. And so was a third person who was with the two people killed.

Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Mark Williams said the incident will continue to be investigated, and no decisions are expected soon on possible charges.

Williams said he reviewed cell phone video of the Wednesday's incident, in which 19-year-old James Bell Jr. and 17-year-old Anmarie Miller were shot to death. The third person was 20, and was not hurt.

The maintenance worker is a 39-year-old Cudahy man.

Reports said the shootings may have been done in self defense. Police said the worker was attacked with a baseball bat, and he then pulled out a gun and shot Bell and Miller.
