    Charges were filed today, October 8, in the death of Khaled Alchaar who was shot and killed in the parking lot of Cheddars Restaurant on May 20, 2019.

    The investigation conducted by the Pleasant Prairie Police Department led to the charges against Shawn M. Amelio Sr. of Kenosha. Amelio told Pleasant Prairie Police that he had accompanied Christina M. Amelio to deliver a quantity of marijuana to Alchaar and the delivery location in the Cheddars Restaurant parking located in the 10300 block of 77th Street, was agreed upon for the narcotics transaction to take place.  

    During the deal in Amelio’s vehicle, Alchaar reportedly produced what appeared to be a firearm and announced a robbery. Alchaar then fled from the vehicle with the marijuana supplied by Christina Amelio. According to statements obtained by Pleasant Prairie Detectives, Shawn Amelio Sr. then exited the car and fired a round from the handgun he possessed toward Alchaar.

    After searching for Alchaar and unable to locate him, Shawn Amelio Sr. and Christina Amelio then left the parking lot in their vehicle and later learned via social media that Alchaar had been killed. 

    The Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office filed the following charges against Shawn Amelio Sr.;
    One count of Second Degree Reckless Homicide / Use of a Dangerous Weapon
    Four counts of First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety / Use of a Dangerous Weapon
    One count of Conspiracy to Manufacture/Deliver THC
    One count of Obstructing an Officer

    Christina Amelio faces the following charges as a result of the incident;
    One count of Conspiracy to manufacture / Deliver THC
    One count of Obstructing an Officer

    The four counts of First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety are a result of the danger posed to pedestrians who were in the parking lot at the time of the shooting.  

    The Pleasant Prairie Police Department acknowledges the cooperation of the Kenosha Police Department and the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office during this four month investigation.
