A man in Wisconsin is said to have killed one person and attempting to murder three others during a three hour spree on April 11, where ‘he was getting or gathering souls.’
Joevashaun Ward, 37, was charged with three counts of first degree attempted homicide, first degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon.
A man was said to have been working at a Milwaukee Barbershop near Buffum and Center when another told him that Ward wanted to chat with him outside around 11am.
The man claimed that he had known Ward from when they went to school together as kids.
Ward was said to have been waiting inside a vehicle and when asked what he was up to, the suspect said that ‘he was getting or gathering souls.’
The man noticed a handgun under Ward’s leg before hearing ‘numerous’ gunshots and attempting to flee.
The man sustained numerous wounds and had to be taken to the hospital.
Ward was said have told a man that ‘he was getting or gathering souls’ when he began firing a gun from a Jeep Cherokee
A police report obtained by Fox 6 found that 10 casings were found at the scene and confirmed that they had come from the same gun.
Ward was said to have driven off in his Jeep Cherokee and police were then sent to a different location, two-and-a-half hours later.
Ryan Sims, 34, was found with excessive bleeding lying on the ground. He succumbed to the four bullets he was struck with and passed away.
A witness saw Ward arguing with another man before hearing two ‘pops’ and seeing Ward pointing a gun from his Jeep.
During his spree, he would injure three people and kill one person
The last shooting occurred over an exchange of Percocet. After making the purchase, Ward shouted, ‘Hey bro, I love you,’ before he started firing his weapon.
The victim fell to the ground while an associate played dead as Ward drove way.
Casings were found inside Ward’s car while a gun case was found at his home.
He had been convicted of credit fraud in 2003 and was banned from purchasing guns.
