Father of 4 children jumped, fatally shot outside home in Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE — Police are investigating a shooting that took the life of a father of four outside his home on Milwaukee's northwest side.

Bridgett Macklin tells WITI-TV ( ) the victim killed Sunday morning is her brother, Timothy Houston. Macklin says her brother didn't have any enemies, so his death is hard to understand. She says her brother was getting out of his car when assailants jumped him and shot him. His wife and children were inside the house.

Houston was pronounced dead at the scene.
