Milwaukee Police Department Community Briefing August 16, 2021 and August 26, 2021 Officer Involved Shootings
As a part of the Community Briefing Series, the Milwaukee Police Department is releasing relevant information regarding the fatal officer-involved shootings that occurred on Monday, August 16, 2021, on the 2500 block of North 27th Street, and on Thursday, August 26, 2021, on the 2800 block of North 41st Street.
The Community Briefing video series was created by MPD to promote transparency and accountability with the public and to provide relevant information about officer-involved shootings. MPD’s goal is to continue to release relevant video regarding critical incidents within a reasonable amount of time after the incident unless releasing such video would jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.
Pursuant to the Milwaukee Police Department’s Standard Operating Procedure, a critical incident that involves the death or great bodily harm of a person while in police custody will be investigated by an outside and independent law enforcement agency. These incidents are being investigated by the Milwaukee Area Investigative Team. The Wauwatosa Police Department led the August 16, 2021, investigation and the Waukesha Police Department led the August 26, 2021, investigation.
