Police efforts hold one man in custody

UWM Student Joesph Munz's murderer may now be custody.

Milwaukee Police late last night arrested a 24-year-old Milwaukee man in connection with the homicide of former UWM student Joseph Munz which occurred on Oct. 10, 2006 at 8:15 p.m. at 3264 N. Weil St. in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood.

Citizen cooperation led police to the stolen van that allegedly was used in the offense. Police believe Mr. Munz was approached by the armed suspect just after Mr. Munz made a sandwich delivery at a home in the 3200 block of N. Weil St. The suspect demanded property and money, then Mr. Munz struggled with the suspect.

Despite being shot numerous times, Mr. Munz continued to struggle even as the suspect pistol-whipped him after the gun was empty. The case is expected to be reviewed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office as early as Tuesday. Milwaukee Police are investigating whether the suspect is involved in any other armed robberies in the City of Milwaukee.

The suspect is currently on parole for homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle.
