Milwaukee man charged with killing teenage neighbor speaks out

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The Milwaukee man charged with gunning down his 13 year old neighbor says he’s still angry about the way police investigated his claim the boy had stolen his guns.

John H. Spooner agreed to speak with a reporter recently, giving his first public comments since the fatal shooting in May. He also said he was fed up with his lawyers, was hoping gun rights supporters would back him and was refusing to take medication.

The 76 year old Spooner faces first-degree intentional homicide charges in the death of Darius Simmons. A December 21st hearing is scheduled for a motion which has been filed asking for a change of venue.

Two psychiatrists have examined Spooner, but their reports are sealed.

He told the reporter he had lived in his southside neighborhood for nearly 40 years because he couldn’t afford to move. He didn’t express any remorse or sympathy for the victim’s family.
