Suspect Flees From Police After North Side Pursuit

Milwaukee Police are investigating a vehicle pursuit that led to a crash on Milwaukee’s North Side. Just before noon on April 23, members of the Neighborhood Task Force’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit located an 18-year-old suspect, wanted for an armed robbery and first degree recklessly endangering safety, in a 1996 Honda Accord near N. 39th Street and W. Capitol Drive. Officers attempted a traffic stop but the suspect fled and a pursuit was initiated. The pursuit lasted approximately ten minutes and traveled through the Northwest Side before returning back to the Sherman Park area. The suspect fled from the vehicle while the vehicle was still in motion and the unoccupied car then hit another car near N. Sherman Boulevard and W. Capitol Drive. A 50-year-old woman in that car suffered non-life threatening injuries. Officers pursued the suspect on foot and during the pursuit one officer accidentally fired his handgun into the ground, striking no one. The suspect eventually got into another vehicle, believed to be driven by an associate, and fled from the scene. MPD continues to seek the suspect and investigate the incident.
