WINNEBAGO COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - An 18-year-old Appleton man was shot and killed by the target of a robbery at an apartment in Oshkosh, according to a criminal complaint obtained by Action 2 News.
Tory Summers, 28, has been charged with Felony Murder in connection to the death of Cashmiere A.S. Hill. Summers is also charged with Armed Robbery and Burglary.
On Nov. 5, Oshkosh Police were called to a report of a shooting in the 800 block of Waugoo Ave. Officers arrived on scene to find Cashmiere Hill on the sidewalk outside of an apartment complex.
An investigator entered the apartment and found blood on the door to the entrance, handrails and steps.
Police located the alleged target of the robbery, who had a gunshot wound on his right forearm. The man told police that he had been watching a movie in his living room when he heard glass breaking in his kitchen. He went to check it out and found a man trying to get into his home.
The man said the suspect demanded money and fired a round at him, hitting him in the wrist. This man said he fired back in self-defense, possibly eight rounds, according to the criminal complaint.
The man told police that he believed he had hit the suspect because the man had fallen back into the stairwell.
The victim said he didn't know the man who tried to rob him, but that he thought the crime could have something to do with posts he made on Facebook and SnapChat about winning close to $6,000 at the casino.
Cashmiere Hill, the man who was shot, was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
During the investigation, police learned that a group of suspects had planned to rob the home on Waugoo Ave because the homeowner had supposedly "hit at the casino and won eight thousand dollars and they said he had pounds of weed in the wall of his house," according to a witness statement in the criminal complaint.
There had been two attempts on the apartment, the second ending with the shooting.
Police identified the group of people who attempted to rob the victim the first time, but failed.
Police spoke with Tory Summers, who provided a statement saying that three people, including Hill, intended to rob the the victim of "drugs or money" but failed in the initial attempt.
Summers said Hill wanted to go back to the house and try to rob it again. Summers said he dropped Hill back over to the house and promised to pick him up after the crime was over.
Summers said he drove over by Otter Avenue, and that's when he heard multiple gunshots.
Summers was arrested and charged in the case. He's being held on a $500,000 cash bond.
Police spoke with one of the men who was involved in the initial robbery attempt. Stephon Harris said that Summers was trying to forcing the group to go back to the apartment to rob the vicitm. Harris and a second man decided not to go, but witnessed Hill leaving with Summers toward the victim's apartment.
Harris, 21, was taken into custody and charged with Armed Robbery and Burglary. He's being held on a $100,000 cash bond.
