Stokes, 45, is being charged with first-degree homicide and illegal possession of a firearm, per NBC News.

Stokes and his sister argued the night before and Blackmon told him he would have to “leave the next day,” according to a report released by assistant district attorney Michael Schindhelm.

Milwaukee Public Schools spokesperson Earl Arms told NBC News that the shooting occurred inside the house and that “everyone could hear it.”
