Two armed suspects, one a felon, are in custody and their guns are off the street after Milwaukee police make a traffic stop. The suspects, a 41-year-old Milwaukee man and a 24-year-old Milwaukee man, are father and son.
On December 4th, officers stopped a car the two were riding in near the 4700 block of W. Clarke Street. The suspects fled on foot and were arrested a short distance away. One of the suspects discarded his firearm while fleeing and the other left his behind in the vehicle. Officers recovered both, including a 9mm semi-automatic handgun.
The case will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
