    Two Milwaukee Officers shot

    Two Milwaukee Officers were shot Tuesday afternoon. Both Officers are expected to survive but are in serious condition. Apparently a few citizens came to the aid of these Officers shortly after the shootings. The filth that did this is in custody.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Two Milwaukee police officers were shot Tuesday afternoon on the near south side by a bicyclist whom they had stopped, police said. A suspect was arrested a short time later.

    Both officers were shot more than once and were taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa. One was in critical condition and one was in satisfactory condition, Police Chief Edward Flynn said.

    The two 2nd District officers - who were in uniform and driving a marked police van - were shot by the bicyclist before they could draw their weapons around 3:10 p.m. in the 800 block of S. 2nd St., police said.

    Flynn identified the officers as Bryan Norberg, 21, on the force six months, who was in satisfactory condition, and Graham Kunisch, 26, with 15 months on the force, who was in critical condition. Both were expected to survive.

    A suspect whom Flynn identified as Julius C. Burton, 18, was arrested in a home in the 900 block of S. 3rd St. less than an hour later, and police recovered a gun. Police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said he had broken into the house.

    Continuation of the article that Willowdared posted. Great job on the citizens on getting involved instead of ignoring the situation. One was a certified EMT according to the article below. These officers were young rookies. Get well soon guys.

    "This is a moment that tests our discipline as well as our resolve," Flynn said at the scene.
    "This neighborhood came through today. At every key moment of this investigation, someone from the community stepped forward.

    "A taxicab driver came to the assistance of the officers as they were bleeding in the street. A UPS driver tried to follow the footsteps of the suspect as he fled (from) the scene. Finally, an individual homeowner identified for us where he thought the suspect might be hiding. And on top of that, our officers, despite all the stress and emotion  extracted that suspect without incident and without injury."

    Asked what prompted the officers to stop the bicyclist, Flynn would say only that "it started from a 'suspicion stop' that was actively resisted."

    Traffic in the area was diverted, and Bradley Tech High School, with about 1,200 students, was locked down for the students' safety, said Philip Harris, a Milwaukee Public Schools spokesman. They were released around 5 p.m.

    Tom Aldana, 25, who works at Super Star Tattoo, 712 S. 2nd St., said he was in the shop working, heard gunshots coming from south of the business and saw commotion outside. He started seeing squad cars arriving on the scene and went to check it out.

    When he got just south of National Ave., he said, "I saw people on the ground," then realized they were police officers.

    Aldana said that he was a state-certified emergency medical technician, and that he identified himself to police.


    "I asked for gloves and helped to suppress a wound on one of the officers," he said.
    According to Aldana, the officer was bleeding from the jaw, but he couldn't tell for sure where the officer had been shot.

    "He appeared to be bleeding the most" of the two officers, Aldana said. He said the second officer appeared to be in a prone position and appeared to have an eye injury.

    Schwartz said she couldn't confirm Aldana's role. She did confirm that a cab driver helped tend to the victims, however.

    The driver was northbound on S. 2nd St. and saw the shooting, according to Red Christensen, general manager of American United Taxi Cab. Christensen said the driver pulled across a lane of traffic, jumped out of the cab and provided aid to the officers.

    "He was covered in blood," Christensen said. "Even the cops say he's a hero." Christensen didn't identify the driver.

    Meanwhile, Mike Collins, sales manager for Federal Manufacturing, 201 W. Walker St., said the plant manager and a UPS delivery man saw the suspect run through the parking lot of the business. The delivery man then followed the suspect. The driver and the plant manager then pointed police toward the residence where the suspect was arrested, Collins said.

    "He went out of his way to follow this guy to see where he went," Collins said of the delivery man.
    Flynn and other officials briefed reporters about 4:40 p.m. and 9 p.m.

    "I think the citizens of this community should recognize how the men and women of this Police Department put their lives on the line every single day," Mayor Tom Barrett said. "These were two men who were doing their job for the citizens of Milwaukee."

    District Attorney John Chisholm said the case was being treated as two counts of attempted homicide.

    Within minutes of the shooting, the intersection of S. 2nd and National Ave. was snarled with traffic including squad cars, unmarked squad cars, a Fire Department ladder truck, a police patrol wagon and horse-mounted police. At least one police dog was also at the scene.

    Lance Macdonald, 61, said he was in his kitchen just around the corner from the shooting scene when he heard five shots - two shots followed by three.

    Macdonald went outside and saw an officer on the ground.

    "I saw the bicycle down on the ground, and a little bit south of that, I saw an officer," said Macdonald, who couldn't see the second officer from his vantage point. "The medics were working on this poor cop like mad. There was definitely deep trouble there."

    Firefighters and paramedics "were here in a moment, and they were working hard, busting their asses," Macdonald said.

    Cristina Zimmer and her husband heard the shots at their home about a block and a half from the scene.

    "We just heard five shots. Two shots and then three shots in rapid succession" Zimmer said.

    The Walker's Point Association, a neighborhood group, released a statement calling the shootings "an act of brutal and unacceptable violence" that "does not reflect the culture of the Walker's Point neighborhood."

    The group said, "There have been drastic steps taken in the area over the past years to improve the safety, security and quality of life for all people in the Walker's Point district."

    It said, "To all the officers and their families, we hold you in our thoughts and prayers."
    Flynn and others echoed the praise for the neighborhood, calling it safe.

    "Do not stigmatize this neighborhood," Flynn said. "This is a low-crime neighborhood. Bad things happen to good people. Bad things happen in good neighborhoods. This is a safe neighborhood with cooperative citizens, hard-working businesses and proud Milwaukeeans.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    One of the two Milwaukee police officers shot during a confrontation with a man in Walker's Point on Tuesday has been released from the hospital.

    The other Officer, who lost an eye, remains in critical condition.
