MPD Officer Involved Shooting


By - Sep 14th, 2022 01:10 am

On Tuesday, September 13, 2022, three Milwaukee Police Officers assigned to the Tactical Enforcement Unit responded to a ShotSpotter alert in the 1500 block of N. 33rd Street at 9:06 pm.  As they arrived, gunshots struck their squad nearly hitting the officers.  The officers exited their squad, engaged three suspects, at least one who was armed with a handgun, and discharged their service weapons. One suspect, a 40-year old Milwaukee man, was struck several times and Milwaukee Police Officers attempted life saving measures.  He was transported by the Milwaukee Fire Department to the hospital, where he later died.

A handgun used by one of the suspects, which was equipped with a drum magazine, was recovered from the scene.  The two other suspects fled on foot and police are actively searching for them.  No officers or other members of the community were struck by gunfire.

The officers involved are the following: a 30-year old male with eleven years of service, a 34-year old male with eight years of service, and a 49-year old male with fifteen years of service.

The officers will be placed on administrative duty as is routine in officer involved incidents.  The Milwaukee Area Investigative Team is investigating the incident and the lead agency is the Wauwatosa Police Department.  The investigation is fluid and ongoing.

A community briefing discussing this incident will be released in the future.
