Milwaukee Man Defends Himself From Roommate

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

From the April 14, 2008 Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

A man who was shot to death about 3:45 a.m. Saturday in a flat in the 2900 block of S. 7th St. has been identified as Joseph Biando, 40.

Police said Sunday that Biando had first fired a shotgun at a 29-year-old man who was living in the same flat. Police declined to name the younger man. They said he was unarmed when he was hit by a blast from the shotgun, got a handgun and shot Biando more than once. The younger man is hospitalized but is expected to live.

As of Sunday, police were not characterizing the shooting as a criminal homicide. Prosecutors will likely review the case and determine whether to charge anyone or rule the incident a justifiable homicide.
