Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Investigators with the Racine Police Department have made an arrest in the homicide of Harry Canady Jr., who was shot to death outside a home on May 7.

Charges and an arrest warrant were filed by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office against Dominique Knight, 26, on May 9. On Tuesday, Knight was taken into custody. Those charges are pending, according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.

According to Wisconsin Circuit Court records, Knight faces charges of first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Harry Jr., 20, was shot to death outside a home in the 600 block of North Memorial Drive on May 7. His father, Harry Sr., was banging on the ambulance door, begging them to let him ride in the ambulance with him. But they were still working on Harry Jr., said Tanya Wooden, Harry’s mother.

Harry Jr. later died at the hospital.
