According to the criminal complaint, Sierra and Fisher fought at a residence on Domanik Drive before the shooting on April 15. A witness told police Sierra allegedly threatened to kill Fisher’s father during the fight.

After the fight, the two left the residence together. Sierra pointed a gun at Fisher at the roundabout and shot her. Fisher fell to the ground. He then picked up Fisher’s body, the witness told police.

“Babe, babe, no, no, are you ok?” Sierra said.

Then, Sierra pulled the slide on the gun, put it to his head and threatened to shoot himself. Instead, he ran from the area, according to the criminal complaint.

The Racine Police Department responded to a report of a woman down and unresponsive at the roundabout at Spring and State Streets that morning. When officers arrived, they found 36-year-old Fisher suffering from a gunshot wound.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
