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.

A teenager has been charged in connection with shots fired at the Eagles Club, 319 Hamilton St., in December.

Kahlia T. Hiler, 17, is charged with three counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, possession of a firearm by someone adjudicated delinquent for the Dec. 19 incident.

According to court records, there was a party at the Eagles Club that night, and someone saw Hiler arguing with several other people. They all eventually went outside, with Hiler and his friends following the other group, the witness told police.

Once outside, the witness said Hiler pulled out a pistol and fired four or five shots at the people with whom he had been arguing.

He is due in court Jan. 27 for a preliminary hearing.
