Milwaukee Man Gets Life In Random Shooting

1/21/12 – An 18-year-old Milwaukee man will spend the rest of his life in prison for the random murder of a teenage girl 13 months ago. A judge refused Friday to give Marcus Evans any chance for a supervised release. He was carrying a shotgun he had just pointed at his mother when he spotted 17-year-old Jonoshia Alexander on December 15th of 2010. Evans didn’t know the girl, but he forced her into an alley where he shot her twice in the head. Alexander was walking home from a north side Milwaukee bus stop, on her way home from a high school dance

practice. According to the Journal Sentinel, Evans was born with cocaine in his system to a schizo-phrenic father and a mother with bi-polar disorder. When he was 15, Evans shot and wounded a cousin, and was given 14 months in juvenile detention. He killed Alexander six months after he left the institution.
