Latin Kings shooting death of a Miller Brewing executive

Two Latin Kings are under arrest in the shooting death of a Miller Brewing executive.
“The Latin Kings are out there right now throwing their weight around a little bit, and we’re going to make sure they feel our attention in a very special way in the next several weeks,” said Chief Edward Flynn, adding that the effort will not be a sweep of Latino men, but arrests of specific gang members.
Flynn’s remarks came during a 5 p.m. news conference announcing the arrests earlier in the day of two suspects, ages 17 and 21, both of whom he said had prior records. The 17-year-old was on probation for a robbery, Flynn said.
The two are expected to be charged in the robbery and killing of Lodewikus “Vic” Milford, 43, after a robbery early Saturday in Walker’s Point. Milford, the director of compensation and benefits for Miller, was returning to his car with three women after they had visited a nightclub when they were robbed about 1:10 a.m. Saturday, police said. After they all gave up their wallets and purses, Milford was shot inside his SUV in a parking lot near S. 2nd and W. Walker streets.
Flynn credited the department’s homicide and gang units and District 2 police officers for arresting the suspects just a few days after the crime. He also said Miller’s $10,000 reward was a “significant factor” in helping detectives break the case.
One of the thugs arrested was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet.
