MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Josh Kaul today announced that Marquise Jackson, age 26, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Alexus Jackson-Milton, age 21 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were sentenced to Wisconsin State Prison for discharge of firearms on the evening of May 13, 2022, following a Milwaukee Bucks NBA playoff game, when thousands of people were in downtown Milwaukee, resulting in sixteen people suffering gunshot wounds.
