Man charged in fatal shooting resigns as firefighter

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The man charged in a fatal shooting in Milwaukee that prosecutors say involved an argument over basketball has resigned his position as a Hales Corners firefighter, the village said on Tuesday.

Twenty-three-year-old Caesar Fuentes has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide by use of a dangerous weapon in the death of 24-year-old Andre Nicholson early Sunday, WTMJ-TV reported.

Police say the two men argued over which high school basketball team was better at a Third Ward bar. A criminal complaint says Nicholson struck Fuentes and was asked to leave the bar.

Fuentes followed him outside and shot him six times, the complaint said.

Fuentes turned himself in a short time later, according to police.
