Milwaukee news, Wisconsin news.

A Milwaukee family is grieving the tragic death of a father who was shot 31 times by his teen son during a fight last month.

D’Juan Eskridge, 18, remains at large since the October 9 murder of his father William Eskridge near 8th and Melvina streets.

“I’m just gonna say that I’m upset and just really want to know, ‘What were you so angry with your dad for?’” the victim’s aunt Rosalind Jackson wondered.

According to a witness, William fell to the ground after the first shots but D’Juan kept shooting him as he approached the body.

  • “I don’t care what the circumstances may have been, there was no reason for that. And you didn’t just kill him, you over-killed him,” the relative added.

    “You devastated our family and to think that you could just do this to your father, sad.”

    Some family members believe D’Juan, whom they also call “Dae-Dae”, may be in Florida and still active on social media.

    “I believe he is on the run and I would just like for him to turn himself in and do the right thing. We deserve to know why,” Jackson said.
