FRANKLIN - A Milwaukee man is facing four felony charges in connection to the shooting incident on Friday, March 3 in the parking lot of the Franklin Walmart, 6701 S. 27th St.
According to a report from the Franklin Police Department (FPD), police arrested Clarence Colvin, 32, for "intentionally firing a gun" at a man and woman while they were driving on Sycamore Street, the street next to Walmart, around 1:40 a.m. March 3.
The man and woman who were fired at were not injured.
The criminal complaint from the FPD stated that Colvin had exchanged comments with a man sitting in a Ford Taurus in the Walmart parking lot. The man claimed that Colvin had pointed a gun at him at the end of the exchange before he and the driver, a woman, drove away.
The Taurus ended up next to Colvin's Camaro at a nearby intersection. The Taurus driver said she tried to stop before reaching his Camaro, as the man had seen a gun pointed outside the window, but was unable to stop before they were side by side.
Afterward, the complaint says, Colvin fired at the Taurus. The man claimed that the first two shots were farther down, but then Colvin raised the gun "like he was trying to aim for [his] head."
The report says that when Colvin was questioned if he was trying to hit anyone, Colvin claimed he was not trying to kill anyone, he was only trying to scare them and hit the car's tire.
Colvin also claimed that he had been shot at. A detective examined the car and noted there was damage to the hood which "could have been from a bullet," according to the complaint.
The Oak Creek Police Department, who also responded to the call, reported that three rounds were fired at the vehicle, with two rounds entering the rear passenger side door and one going through the rear passenger side window.
In questioning, Colvin mentioned he had left the gun near the Walmart. While searching the area, police found a .32 caliber firearm near the location, between GFS Marketplace and Gander Mountain.
Police also arrested a woman who was in the car with Colvin when he was taken into custody, but she was later questioned and released without charges.
Colvin is now charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety, one count of endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
