Three Suspects Arrested in the Shots Fired Incident on I-894
Milwaukee, WI (November 21, 2020) On Friday, November 20th at approximately 8:20 p.m., a Milwaukee County Sheriff‘s deputy observed a blue Nissan Altima traveling southbound on I-894, weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed, passing his unmarked squad. When the deputy caught up to the vehicle at Oklahoma Ave., an occupant in the vehicle fired gunshots at his squad.
