MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 43-year-old man is home from the hospital, after he was shot four times Thursday by a Milwaukee police sergeant during a domestic incident.
Police were called to a north side home, where the man apparently threatened to shoot his girlfriend, children, and others.
Officials said two sergeants were trying to negotiate with the suspect when he shot his girlfriend. One of the sergeants then shot the man – and the girlfriend and the suspect’s 65-year-old relative were also hurt.
Police Sergeant Mark Stanmeyer said Friday that the suspect was hit by each of the officer’s four bullets. And one of those bullets most likely went through the suspect before hitting the older relative in the arm.
He was also released from the hospital Friday, along with the suspect’s girlfriend.
Stanmeyer said the suspect is in custody – and prosecutors will consider charges. The police shooter is on administrative duty while the case is being investigated.
