Milwaukee Police Officer Killed in the Line of Duty

Statement of Common Council President José G. Pérez

By - Feb 7th, 2023 10:00 am

I am angered and deeply saddened by the death earlier this morning of one of our officers during an incident that took place just blocks from my home in the 12th Aldermanic District.

My prayers are with the officer’s loved ones and friends, and with the men and women of the MPD who served with him.

In our city we have too many guns, too many who are willing to carry and use guns, and far too much violence affecting every neighborhood. The death of every citizen is a tragic loss for our city, but it is especially tragic when it’s a police officer who has sworn an oath to protect and serve. 

We as a city need to come together. We can and we must do better. This is up to all of us. Fathers and mothers, grandparents, pastors and priests, community activists. We need peace on our streets and an end to the violence.
