The John Henry Spooner murder trial included a chilling piece of evidence: Video footage of John Henry Spooner, 76, shooting 13-year-old Darius Simmons.
John Henry Spooner, a Milwaukee native, was charged with first-degree homicide after shooting Darius Simmons to death last May. The jury saw the graphic video footage (see below) that was, ironically, taken from John Henry Spooner’s own surveillance camera.
The footage shows John Henry Spooner leaving his home with a gun, get into a brief argument and then wave the gun around before shooting Darius Simmons in the chest. The young boy flees the scene before he died from the gunshot wound.
