35-year-old Dominic Carter owned Hair Trappers on Milwaukee’s north west side
A Milwaukee barber was shot and killed Thursday at Domino’s Pizza on Lovers Lane and Silver Spring Drive.
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner identified him as 35-year-old Dominic Carter.
Carter owned Hair Trappers, a barbershop just feet away from the Domino’s where he was killed.
His mother spoke with WISN 12 on the phone Friday.
She said her son was a good person, a father to seven children and a mentor.
Carter hosted a youth mentor program at his barbershop to teach kids his skill and to motivate them to become entrepreneurs themselves.
“He always wanted to be an entrepreneur,” said Barbara Green, Carter’s former teacher at the Institute for Career Empowerment. “He always wanted to be able to do something that had to do with kids, that had to do with youth. And he was able to do that.”
Green said she was heartbroken when she heard the news.
“He knew the streets but he also knew the word,” she said. “There was a calling on his life, something that God wanted him to do. And he was doing that in his way. Not the traditional way, but in his way and he was reaching people that others couldn’t reach. And that’s what makes it so sad, because he was making a difference.”
Business owners nearby agreed.
“Every Sunday he would bring boys to come and clean up the parking space and he bought pizza for them,” said one worker. “He was a good person.”
Milwaukee police do not have a suspect at this time.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS or P3 Tips App to remain anonymous.
