MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A second suspect has been charged in connection with the shooting of a 10-year-old girl at a Milwaukee playground.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jamey Lamont Jackson was charged Monday with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Jackson was arrested last week. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that according to the complaint, a 16-year-old witness identified Jackson as one of two men she saw running, with handguns, after the shooting.

Another man, 18-year-old Sylvester Lewis, was earlier charged with first-degree reckless injury and two other felonies in the May 21 shooting that left Sierra Guyton hospitalized.

The child was playing with her 12-year-old sister when she was shot in the head.

Online court records do not list a defense attorney for Jackson. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- An 18-year-old man has been charged in the shooting of a 10-year-old girl on a Milwaukee playground.

A criminal complaint filed Wednesday says Sylvester Lewis told police he fired toward the playground after a man who was hanging out there shot at him.

Lewis has been charged with first-degree reckless injury and two other felonies. He faces more than 47 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Police Chief Edward Flynn told reporters Monday that Lewis has 15 previous arrests. Court records show he received a 12-month sentence in January 2013 for a burglary conviction but the sentence was stayed.

Lewis does not have an attorney listed in online court records in the shooting case. A message left for his attorney in the burglary case was not immediately returned.
