Milwaukee Police Officers Shoots/Kills Armed Man

A Milwaukee police officer shot and killed an armed man after a chase and crash on the city’s north side yesterday afternoon.

Around 1:40 p.m. officers tried to stop a vehicle that was driving without license plates near 70th and Thurston.

The vehicle initially stopped, but then took off as officers approached.

The vehicle was spotted again near 60th and Thurston, and the pursuit began.

It ended near 91st and Silver Spring when the fleeing vehicle ran a red light and crashed into another motorist.

The 31-year-old man got out and started running with a gun in his hand.

Officers ordered the man to drop the gun and one officer shot the man. He died at the scene, and the gun was recovered.
