Three Armed Suspects Arrested Following Vehicle Chase

Milwaukee Police Officers apprehended three armed suspects after a brief vehicle pursuit.  On Sunday, June 12th around 12:30 a.m. an off-duty Milwaukee Police Officer on his way home from work observed a suspicious vehicle and suspects appearing to be breaking into vehicles in the area of N. 89th Street and W. Chambers Street. The officer followed the vehicle, a silver Ford F-150, as it left the area. One of the suspects fired several gunshots at the officer as the vehicle drove away. No one was struck by the gunfire.

On Sunday, June 12th around 1:20 PM in the area of N. Sherman Boulevard and W. Hampton Avenue, MPD officers located the F-150. A vehicle pursuit began when officers attempted to stop the F-150 and it fled from them.  When the pursuit reached the area of N. 37th Street and W. Villard Avenue, the F-150 disregarded a red light and struck a northbound Nissan Sentra. This caused the Ford to strike a Chevy Cruz that was also driving in the area.  Before coming to rest the Ford struck two parked vehicles. Three suspects fled from the Ford. As they ran, a District Seven police officer discharged his firearm at one of the suspects believed to be armed. No one was struck by the officer’s rounds.  The suspects were taken into custody a short time later. They are a 15-year-old male, a 16-year-old male, and a 17-year-old male all from Milwaukee. The 17-year-old is out on bail for an armed robbery. Two handguns were recovered from the F-150. The suspects were taken to a local hospital for medical evaluation.  The driver of the Nissan Sentra was not injured. Two adults and three children in the Chevy Cruz were all taken to a local hospital for treatment of what is believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing and the case against the suspects will be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
