Authorities in Wisconsin have charged two men in the shooting death of Gurnee resident Malik D. Boyd in late February.

Michael T. Frazier, 37, of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, and Shaquell B. Harris, 27, of Kenosha, were both charged with first-degree murder, according to a news release from Kenosha police.


Police found Boyd, who had been shot at least once, about 2:10 a.m. Feb. 29 when officers responded to reports of gunfire near the 3000 block of Roosevelt Road in southwest Kenosha. Boyd was taken to Froedtert Hospital, Pleasant Prairie campus, where he died.

According to a report in the Kenosha News, Frazier and Harris both had been held in Kenosha County jail for weeks on probation violations before they were charged in the slaying. Harris has been in custody since the night of the shooting after police saw him running from the scene and found him hiding under a vehicle after a chase, police said. Frazier was arrested March 6.

Both remain in jail on $1 million cash bonds.
