Two defendants have been charged in the shots fired incident last month at Brett’s Farmhouse Tavern in Milwaukee last month.

On Oct. 1, around 1:30 a.m., surveillance video captured footage of a man wildly firing into the air outside the tavern. Milwaukee police identified him as Demond Griggs. They said Korey Griggs fired his gun just moments before that. Both have arrests warrants out.

According to the criminal complaint, the reason for the shooting was a Good Samaritan tried to tell Demond Griggs to stop hitting his wife.
Just before the shots rang out Demond Griggs was seen on surveillance video "striking [his wife] repeatedly and pulling her hair."

At one point he forced her over to the passenger side of the car and hit her head into the window. Finally, forced her "into the front passenger seat, striking her repeatedly."

This whole attack when on for minutes. 

Police said an unidentified man saw it happen in the parking lot and tried to stop it

That's when Korey Griggs joined the argument, raised a handgun and fired it four times.

Then Demond Griggs went to the trunk of the car, pulled out an assault rifle from his trunk and "fired a total of twelve shots in various directions."

No one was hurt but both multiple charges.
