Praying for police officer wounded in northwest side shooting

Statement of Common Council President Michael J. Murphy June 19, 2015

As Milwaukee Police continue to investigate the shooting of a Wauwatosa Police officer on Milwaukee’s northwest side, I am hoping and praying for that officer’s quick and complete recovery from injuries suffered in the line of duty. My thoughts and support are with this officer’s family, and I know the community will rally around them to provide for their needs during this difficult time.

Events like this bring to sharp focus the risk to which officers expose themselves in the course of their daily duties. I am grateful for this officer’s bravery, as well as the commitment demonstrated by every police officer on our streets.
