The Milwaukee cop who fatally shot Sylville Smith has been identified as Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown, a two-year veteran of the Milwaukee Police Department. According to the NY Daily News, the Milwaukee Police Department shared a 2014 image of Brown, identifying and lauding Brown as the rookie cop who helped a homeless woman find a warm meal during frigid weather.
Heaggan-Brown was known locally as KB Domo, a rapper who often collaborated with hip-hop artist Dae Flywalker. In June 2015, Heaggan-Brown appeared in a music video posted on YouTube called “Monster Freestyle,” a tribute to Meek Mill’s “Monster,” rapping the lyrics: “Imma start a riot like it’s Baltimore.”
The sister of the victim, Sherelle Smith, said Heaggan-Brown and her brother Sylville knew each other from high school.
