    <modsnip>

    Father of two, Christopher Gray Jr. was popular on the club scene to the point that former Milwaukee Bucks Guard Brandon Jennings tweeted condolences.

    Another image on FB as tribute to Chris Gray. This man well liked and respected in the Milwaukee club scene.

    Police think someone who knows him may have been involved.

    They are looking for 2 people.

    Can I include a link to his FB page?

    The killer may very well be in his friends list.


    Christopher gray Jr. RIP

    "On Tuesday night, family and friends who gathered for a vigil were shocked to discover that the home of Christopher Gray had been broken into a second time."

    "Milwaukee Police confirm the report of the second break in and say they are investigating whether it's related to the original burglary and murder."

    FOX6 News has learned the man killed, Christopher Gray, was a well-known club promoter in Milwaukee who had a lot of friends and fans.

    Gray is better known by his nickname, “Caly Kris.”


    “He’s got two sons — without a father,” community activist Tory Lowe said.


    “Just to remember that he was a good person and whatever happened he didn`t deserve. He didn`t deserve this. He loved, loved, loved people — not just his family. He loved people. Gentle giant is what he was,” Cassandra Buloy said.


    Messages flooded Twitter on Monday as folks learned of his death, including an RIP message from former Bucks player Brandon Jennings.

    "Gray died from blunt force trauma, Lt. Mark Stanmeyer said Tuesday."

    http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/w...232481491.html

    The suspects have still not been caught. Le indicated that the killers may have known him and possibly targeted him.

    "Family and friends gathered Monday night for a vigil outside the home of Gray, a popular Milwaukee club promoter known as Caly Kris, and colleagues will collect donations for Gray's family Wednesday night at Suite Night Club on N. Old World 3rd St."

    BBM I guess that means it's okay to put up the link to his FB? The only reason I asked is because police seem to think he knew the killers.

    What do ya'll think, should I post it. Do you think it might be helpful in finding who kill this man?

    Thank you so much for your answer.

    Popular club promoter Christopher Gray honored one week after his murder.

    Friends and family of slain club promoter attended an event at Brooklyns, where Gray hung out and bar-tended part time, to honor him.

    "He was just a kind spirit, he always made you laugh," said Shantel Stovall, owner of Brooklyn's. "He would just brighten up your day."

    "He was a good dude. He wasn't in the streets," Gardner said Sunday at Brooklyn's. "He didn't deserve that."

    1 man charged 2 arrested

    I am happy to say that 1 man has been charged and 2 arrested in the gruesome bludgeoning death of Christopher Gray Jr.

    "Jonathan O. Sellers, 22, of Milwaukee was arrested Friday and charged Tuesday with burglary. A 16-year-old boy and a 34-year-old Milwaukee man were arrested within the last 24 hours in connection with Gray's death, Lt. Mark Stanmeyer said Tuesday afternoon."

    The other two individuals remained in the car. Sellers and the teen ransacked the house, looking for electronics and other valuables. When they heard the garage door open, the teen grabbed a hammer from the kitchen, and the two attacked Gray when he walked into the house, chasing him into an alley.

    Sellers told police he pushed Gray and that the teen hit Gray several times in the head with the hammer. Sellers grabbed the money and an iPhone from Gray's pocket, and he and the teen ran until they were picked up in the car by the other two individuals.

    Police linked Sellers to the crime scene with fingerprint evidence, the complaint says.

    So the TEEN was the killer, and they grabbed things from a drying man's pockets.... so sad. I am glad they were stupid enough to leave fingerprints at the scene.

    A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Jonathan Sellers on to 17.5 years in prison and another 12.5 years of extended supervision for his role in Gray’s death... Sellers pleaded guilty to felony murder...

    Police initially arrested four people in this case. However, prosecutors said they only had enough evidence to charge two people.

    Melvin Jones was 16 at the time of the crime, but he’s charged as an adult. He changed his plea to ‘guilty’ earlier this month and will be sentenced in May.
