Milwaukee Police responded to a Shot Spotter call which detailed that gun shots were fired in the 3600 block of N. 27th Street, on Friday, August 28th, 2015, at about 10:00 p.m. As District #5 officers were in the area they observed a man who appeared to be placing a handgun into his pocket while walking away from the shots fired area. Upon seeing the police, the suspect ran into a near –by yard. Officers arrested the suspect and located a 9mm handgun in his pocket. The cartridges in the suspect’s gun matched the casings that were recovered at the shots fired scene.
The suspect, who is a 35 year old Milwaukee man, is a convicted felon and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or another substance. The man later spit onto an officer while being processed. The case will be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office for charges.
