Police said a storeowner shot and killed one of two teenagers he said was trying to rob his Milwaukee store.
Singh and his wife, Devinder Singh live above the store at 31st Street and Glendale Avenue.
They said they heard noises around 1:30 a.m. Monday.
Police said the 51-year-old took his gun, went downstairs and shot at the two teenagers, ages 17 and 18.
The 18-year-old later died.
Singh was taken into police custody, but was later released.
Monday, his wife defended his actions.
"In this United States, we have the right to live our life, and we are not criminal. We are working 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. My husband he drives a semi. He works more than me. So we have the right, and we have the right to kill if someone comes on my property like that," Devinder Singh said.
Singh is scheduled to meet with the district attorney Thursday to determine whether the shooting was justified.
