Citizens, Officers Help Save Shooting Victim’s Life

Citizens at the scene and officers from District Seven of the Milwaukee Police Department helped save a shooting victim’s life over the weekend. Squads were sent to a shooting at about 9:00 p.m. on August 1 in the 4700 block of N. 36th Street. When officers arrived on the scene they saw bystanders using a belt to try and stop the bleeding coming from the victim’s gunshot wound to his thigh. District Seven Officer Lisa Bradley had previously attended Tactical EMS training and had a tourniquet with her. Bradley, and her partner Officer Joseph Sedlacek, applied the tourniquet to the victim’s wound and stopped the bleeding until the Milwaukee Fire Department arrived, likely saving the victim’s life. The victim, a 51-year-old Milwaukee man, was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. Milwaukee Police continue to search for the shooting suspect.
