Last month, a 22 year old Milwaukee police officer was killed in a car chase pursuit.
Today at 5:00 PM, officers were serving a gun and drug warrant when they were met by the suspect at his house and gun fire erupted from the lifelong felon.
The first officer to enter was shot. He died shortly after getting to the hospital. His name has not been released. He was a 17 year veteran of MPD.
This was the first time in 22 years that an MPD officer was shot and killed in the line of duty.
The suspect was taken alive and did not sustain any gun shot wounds…he merely ran out of ammunition.
This hits home for my wife and I. Our daughter is married to a Milwaukee police officer. He has served for 10 years.
We are in a near constant state of worry for our son in law…especially since he is tactical and SWAT.
My daughter and son in law have lots of summer BBQ’s and we are always invited. The parties are always full of cops and firefighters. Great men and women. They all delight in making fun of me because I’m an old Hippie. I love them all.
Honor those that serve. God bless them.
