First dating violence trial

Milwaukee police were sent to two separate domestic violence-related battery calls involving Tucker and Jones in December 2016. As the two struggled, Jones, came into the bedroom and shouted: "Don't shoot my daddy," according to the criminal complaint.

Tucker aimed the pistol at her father and shot him before turning around and shooting her in the chest, the complaint says.

Police found a loaded .22-caliber pistol inside the vehicle.

In an interview with police, Tucker said he found the gun two weeks earlier and carried it for protection.

In the report, police wrote: "Tucker admits he was out of control, he knows he needs help, and that he has a anger management problem."
