Milwaukee Burger King death resulted from 'staged' robbery plot gone wrong, authorities say

The death of a 16-year-old Burger King employee in Milwaukee earlier this month was the result of a botched plan for a "staged" armed robbery, according to authorities.
Edwards allegedly coordinated the plan with his daughter and the victim, Niesha Harris-Brazell, to rob the Burger King where the girls worked on Jan. 2, FOX 6 of Milwaukee reported.
The deceased girl's grandmother, however, denied her granddaughter was involved, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

Harris-Brazell was not shot by Edwards, but instead by Derrick Ellis, 34, a Burger King employee who authorities believe was not involved in the plot but was instead trying to stop the robbery, according to the Journal-Sentinel.
