Alderman Urges City Employees To Be Careful!
It has been brought to my attention that city Sanitation workers had a close call with gunfire while collecting garbage.
It has been brought to my attention that city Sanitation workers had a close call with gunfire while collecting garbage this morning near N. 19th and W. Locust Streets.
Thank God no one was struck by the gunfire, which I’m told entered the cab portion of the garbage truck. Milwaukee Police are investigating the incident but there are few details available at this time.
Whether directed at them or just random gunfire from the neighborhood, it is a sad state of affairs when city workers just trying to do their jobs in broad daylight are dodging real bullets!
I ask that all city workers out in the field in Milwaukee be aware of their surroundings at all times and report anything suspicious to police.
I also ask anyone with information about this morning’s incident to call police immediately.
