CREATED Mar. 12, 2013

MILWAUKEE - A man arrested for shooting the friend of his wife while in an argument has been charged for the crime.

According to the criminal complaint, Luis Perez-Guillermo, 49 of Milwaukee, was at the home of his wife when they began arguing. The woman then reportedly called a friend of hers, Daniel Perez. Luis Perez's son said his mom told the children to start packing, and when Daniel Perez arrived, they began putting their things in his car.

The son said that when he was walking back into the house, he heard a gunshot and his mother's scream. When he turned back around, he saw Daniel Perez fall to the ground. He said he saw his father holding a gun and pointing it at his mother. Two of the children then "jumped on top of [their] father Luis Perez, to try to get the gun out of his hand." Another brother grabbed a knife and began stabbing their father.

Luis Perez then reportedly drove away in his red SUV. A passerby later found Perez idling in his car, bleeding, and called police. He was taken to the hospital and later arrested.

Luis Perez claims his wife was on the phone with who he believed to be her boyfriend. The man, Daniel Perez, later arrived and Luis Perez admits to shooting him and attempting to kill his wife.

Luis Perez has been charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide, Use of a Dangerous Weapon and Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide, Use of a Dangerous Weapon.
