The next day, police interviewed a person who called 911 regarding the shooting incident. The person indicated being with the victim at the GPC Quick Mart when the victim was heard saying, "Kenny." The complaint states the victim knew "Kenny" from "talking to him, social media posts, and news articles from five years ago."
The person told police the victim and "Kenny" walked up to each other and possibly shook hands. Moments later, the person heard several gun shots. The person told police "'Kenny' was holding a gun that was pointed toward (the victim)," per the complaint. "Kenny" then reportedly jumped into a car and fled the scene.
Milwaukee police showed the person a photo array. The person was able to identify the shooter as Kenneth Twyman.
Court records show he posted $5,000 cash bond for a separate case in January 2022. While out, he is now accused of killing Luckett.
While Twyman is charged with homicide, online court records indicate he is not police custody – and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Seen on 'Wisconsin's Most Wanted'
Twyman was previously featured as one of Wisconsin's Most Wanted on FOX6 News back in December 2018. At the time, a deputy marshal called the then 20-year-old a "complete menace" to the city.
"In one video, very alarming, he is driving a vehicle, puts the weapon outside the car and shoots recklessly outside the window into the neighborhood," the deputy marshal said in 2018.
Kenneth Twyman arrested in Arkansas
In September 2018, U.S. Marshals said dashcam footage showed Twyman crash into another car near 55th and Congress. Four people were hurt.
Twyman was arrested for the crime in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2019.
