MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man has been charged after he allegedly shot and killed Antwon Gibson at 1840 N. Farwell Ave. on Dec. 21.

According to police, Timothy Alexander, 23, is facing up to 60 years in prison if convicted. He is being charged with first degree reckless homicide after he told police he shot at Gibson in self defense.

Alexander told police he was meeting with Gibson to buy marijuana. According to a criminal complaint, Gibson and Alexander had already negotiated a price but when Alexander arrived, Gibson had changed that price.

The suspect believed Gibson had a gun so when he saw Gibson reaching, Alexander shot at him in self defense.

Police said Alexander ran from the scene, then turned around and shot at Gibson's car. Alexander told police that he doesn't know if Gibson had a gun, or if he was just pretending to.
