On Wednesday, April 11 Joevashaun Ward of Milwaukee told a friend that he would be “gathering souls”.  Shortly after, he shot his friend and three others in cold blood.

Around 11 a.m. Wednesday, Ward entered a local barbershop and asked for his childhood friend, whose name has not yet been released. The man asked Ward what was going on and he replied he was “gathering souls.” He noticed a large handgun between Ward’s legs and proceeded into the barbershop.

Upon walking away, the man heard “numerous” gunshots from behind and collapsed after being shot several times.

Less than three hours after the first incident, Ward shot Ryan Sims, 34, from his Jeep Cherokee. Sims was found on the ground bleeding profusely.

He was pronounced dead after being shot four times.

Ward fired at the next victim when he saw two men in an argument. Once again, he fired his gun from inside the car.

Shortly after the third victim fell, Ward found his final target while purchasing Percocet pills. After the drug exchange, Ward supposedly yelled, “Hey bro, I love you,” to the victim, then proceeded to fire his gun.

According to Fox News, Ward was convicted of credit fraud in 2003 and was banned from purchasing a gun. He has been charged with first-degree attempted intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by felon. A preliminary hearing was set for April 26.
