Charges filed in fatal shooting outside Walmart


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Charges have been filed in a fatal shooting outside a Walmart store in Sheboygan.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday charges Kou Yang with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Pheng Lee on Jan. 8. The 21-year-old Sheboygan man is also charged with first-degree reckless injury and possessing a gun as a felon. All charges were filed as repeater crimes.

The complaint says Cheng Lung Moua summoned his brother to Walmart after seeing Yang in the store. Moua's brother, Lee and another man arrived and approached Yang in the parking lot. Moua told police he was going to tell Yang to leave him alone. Prosecutors say store surveillance video shows Yang opening fire. Moua fell to the ground and was wounded. Lee was also shot as he tried to run away and later died.
