Convicted Felon Charged After Pointing Gun at MPD Officers

A convicted felon has been charged after he pointed a gun at Milwaukee Police officers at a North Side park. Officers assigned to the Neighborhood Task Force’s bicycle unit were patrolling the area of the 1200 block of W. Center Street around 11:45 p.m. on June 14 when they saw 44-year-old Kequic D. Johnson walking through a playground area and told him to stop. Johnson ignored their commands and pointed a handgun at them before running away. A short time later the officers heard a gunshot from the direction of where Johnson was running. Responding officers quickly located Johnson in the 1400 block of W. Hadley Street and arrested him. A handgun and a t-shirt Johnson was wearing was found in his flight path. Johnson is a convicted felon with an arrest history dating back to 1995. During an interview with police, he admitted to having the gun and pointing it at people he saw but claims he didn’t know they were police officers. Johnson has been charged with one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Obstructing/Resisting an Officer and faces more than ten years in prison if convicted.
