Man accused of police shooting dies'
A man who died after being shot while driving in an eastbound truck was suspected of resisting arrest, police said.
Police say a 24-year-old man who was being questioned by officers on July 1 was shot while on a Milwaukee County street near the intersection of South Lake and Milwaukee. No one else was shot.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the man died from his injuries as he was transported to an area hospital.
Police say a 37-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were in a car with a 23-year-old man, a man in a car with a 30-year-old man and another man in a car with a 27-year-old man, when they all got pulled over by officers about 6:30 p.m.
The suspects allegedly resisted the officers' attempts to talk them off a road trip, a warrant for their arrest says, and officers returned fire.
The 37-year-old man died. The 22-year-old man was hospitalized with nonlife-threatening injuries. The other man remained in custody. The car was towed.
More than an hour after the shooting, a 17-year-old girl in the truck told officers she had a knife. Her family identified the girl as one of the children involved.
Officers then found the man who died in the vehicle, identified as 22-year-old Joshua Joseph, of the 4800 block of West Michigan Avenue.
Dj campbell arrested in relation to match fixing allegations against him
A former NSW man who was arrested in 2015 on match fixing allegations is now on the run after allegedly using his own money to send out thousands of thousands of fake SMS messages to get around the legislation.
Mark Bellamy is currently in jail on the fourth day of a five-year trial after pleading guilty to 22 counts of using a false name and address to obtain an interest in a registered partnership.
He is also accused of arranging a $3.5 million loan to his ex-partner in a plan to help him win a state lottery ticket in November 2014.
His guilty plea triggered a crackdown by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and the Department of Justice.
Under the law, people found guilty of the alleged offences will face up to seven years in jail, up to a $50,000 fine, and up to $13,500 in victim surcharges.
Under the Federal Match Fixing Act, the maximum fine the regulator can impose is $1 million.
The court trial was told the charges were so severe and broad that the NSW Department of Justice had to seek out the help of a number of law firms in order to convince them to join the prosecution.
"The Crown had two people in the system who could give us advice," one defence lawyer said.
"I'll tell you one particular law firm said: 'You know the Federal Matchfixing Act doesn't say we can't go after you for the money you're going to be charged for the SMS messages you'll send out, how about that?'"
Crown's decision to plead guilty could have affected Mr Bellamy's employment as an IT manager, he said.
But instead of accepting the charges against him, Mr Bellamy has now moved to avoid his fate, making his first appearance in court on Sunday at the Melbourne Federal Court.
