(WGTD)----Racine police are looking for a man who allegedly shot and killed his daughter’s boyfriend. 62-year-old Tracy Scott has been charged with 1st Degree Intentional Homicide and Possession of a Firearm as a Felon. According to the criminal complaint, Scott shot 38-year-old Shawntee Hudson in the head in the early-morning hours of June 2nd. Hudson and the defendant’s daughter apparently had been in a relationship for the past five years. Recently, some domestic incidents occurred, including a discussion over the victim’s employment status and unwillingness to help around the house. The woman said her mother and the man she considered to be her father entered the home, and within a matter of minutes a gunshot rang out, and the father fled and Hudson was dead. 


Meanwhile, Kenosha police said a suspect in an April murder in an apartment in the 16-hundred block of 60th St. has been arrested in Illinois. 36-year-old Antonio Summers had been sought since shortly after the shooting death of 40-year-old Deshun Jackson. The shooting apparently stemmed from a poker game in which Jackson was winning most of the money.


In yet another murder, a second man is now behind bars in connection with the shooting death last fall in Racine of suspected drug dealer James Hamilton. Bond for 24-year-old Christopher Martinez was set this week at $1 million. His 26-year-old brother, Jonathan Martinez, is facing identical charges. Authorities say Hamilton traded gunfire with intruders to his residence on Monroe Ave. In addition to Hamilton’s body, officers found $125,000 in cash, two guns and drugs.
