KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Court records say investigators followed footprints in the fresh snow to arrest two men charged with fatally shooting a driver who crashed into a house in Kenosha.

Nineteen-year-old Markese Tibbs and 22-year-old Joseph-Jamal Brantley are each charged with first-degree reckless homicide and other felony counts in last week’s shooting death of Anthony Edwards.

Police say Edwards lost consciousness after he was shot with his foot on the gas pedal. His car jumped the curb and hit a house. A 15-year-old passenger called 911.

Detectives followed the footprints to a nearby apartment and arrested the two men. The Kenosha News (https://bit.ly/1f5evgL ) reports police say the shooting was over a drug deal. A criminal complaint says Tibbs and Brantley wanted to commit a robbery rather than pay for the drugs.
