Cyclist Gets 25 Years in Deadly Road Rage Shooting | Wisconsin News


MILWAUKEE (AP) — A bicyclist convicted of killing an immigration lawyer who confronted him after a road rage incident in downtown Milwaukee has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Theodore Edgecomb, 32, fatally shot Jason Cleereman, 54, as he walked quickly toward Edgecomb on the Holton Street bridge the night of Sept. 22, 2020.

The Journal Sentinel reported that moments before the shooting, Edgecomb had punched Cleereman in the face as Cleereman and his wife were stopped at a light in the car she was driving. Edgecomb testified the car had struck him on his bike along Brady Street a few blocks back, and that Cleereman yelled at him using a racial slur.

After the shooting, Edgecomb fled the state and was arrested about six months later in Kentucky.
