The father of a woman’s child fatally shot the woman’s new suitor after pulling up to the two at a traffic light on Milwaukee’s south side, according to a criminal complaint.
Police recovered 21 spent 9mm casings from the intersection of South 27th Street and West Forest Home Avenue, where Victor M. Cintron, 23, allegedly shot Jose L. Rodriguez-Castro, 22, shortly before 3 p.m. Friday.
Cintron is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, according to the complaint issued Tuesday.
Rodriguez-Castro was stuck eight times as he attempted to shield the woman from the gunfire, which struck three other occupied vehicles nearby, according to the complaint.
Cintron, a concealed carry permit holder, ignored demands to turn his firearms over to authorities after the woman filed a restraining order against him on April 10, according to state court records.

An arrest warrant was issued for him the next day when he was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and disorderly conduct on suspicion of beating the woman and threatening to kill her, according to the records and the criminal complaint.
He remained at large Tuesday and anyone who knows of his whereabouts is asked to call Milwaukee police at (414) 935-7360.
