A 45-year-old South Milwaukee woman has been charged with attempted first degree intentional homicide following last week’s shooting at the South Towne Apartments.
Laura Lee Saxton, 319 Southtowne Place #101, was charged on Friday.
Her preliminary hearing is this Friday.
The victim, a 56-year-old man, was treated and released from Froedtert Hospital, police said.
From the Fox 6 report:
Saxton is accused of shooting a 56-year-old Andrew Gibas in the head in an apartment on Wednesday, September 26th.
Gibas told police Saxton is his roommate. Gibas told police he noticed on Monday, September 24th his two guns were missing — and said he questioned Saxton and her boyfriend about the guns.
Gibas told police Saxton came into his bedroom on Wednesday night and laid next to him. Gibas told police he thought that was strange because Saxton does not normally do that, and they have separate bedrooms. Gibas told police Saxton told her he was mad at him, but that he would not know why she was mad. Gibas said Saxton then shot him several times in the head.
Gibas struggled with Saxton for the gun, and tried to grab his cell phone, according to the criminal complaint in the case — but Saxton’s boyfriend grabbed the cell phone away. Gibas then ran to another apartment and called 911.
