The Journal Sentinel reports that two felons have been charged in the fatal shooting case of a 13-year-old Milwaukee girl in her home. Both suspects have been convicted of armed robbery in the past, and were charged Wednesday for the shooting death that happened on Monday.

Isaac D. Barnes, 26, and Untrell Oden, 27, were both arrested and charged. Barnes has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide with a dangerous weapon, endangering safety and a felon possessing a gun. Oden is being charged with two counts of possessing a gun as a felon.

According to police reports, the child’s mother went to bed while her children watched tv and heard shots at 7:45 p.m. She found her daughter bleeding and called 911, but responders couldn’t save her. The girl had been shot once.

Police found four casings and bulletholes in the home, and discovered Barnes and Oden in a home nearby with two assault rifles. Barnes’ ex-girlfriend witnessed him wearing a mask and carrying an assault rifle just after the shooting happened.

Oden told police he saw Barnes firing at an unknown target while walking home from a store, and asked if he could store his guns at Oden’s house. The casings found outside of the home matched the handgun found in his home.

In 2011, Oden was sentenced to five years in prison for armed robbery. In 2010, Barnes was sentenced to 2 ½ years for an armed robbery he committed in 2010.
