Today, Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at approximately 9:21 a.m., Milwaukee Police responded to a domestic violence-related subject with a gun call on the 1800 block of W. Fairmount Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers engaged in dialogue with the suspect in an attempt to obtain cooperation. Officers attempted to approach at the front of the residence when the suspect fired shots at the officers. Several officers returned fire and then some officers relocated to the rear of the residence at which time the suspect fired more shots in their direction, subsequently striking an officer. No one was struck by the officers’ gunfire.
The suspect retreated back into the residence and refused to surrender. At the time, four children, were also in the residence. A tactical set-up was established and negotiators were summoned.

After several hours of negotiations, the suspect, a 25-year-old male, released the children and surrendered without further incident. A firearm was recovered.

The injured officer is a 38-year-old male with over 16 years of service. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-fatal injuries. An additional officer sustained a minor injury but did not receive medical treatment.

The Milwaukee Police Department Homicide Division is leading the investigation. Criminal charges will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the upcoming days. The investigation is fluid and ongoing.

We want to thank the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office for assisting and the Milwaukee Fire Department for providing prompt medical attention to our officer and those involved.

The Milwaukee Police Department sends our thoughts and prayers to our officer and wish him a speedy recovery. We are very proud of all the men and women of the Milwaukee Police Department that showed great professionalism.

The Milwaukee Police Department remembers those members who paid the ultimate price in service to the community. Today we honor Michael Draeger who died December 28, 1974, of injuries sustained in a automobile crash November 18, 1974.

Patrol Officer Michael Draeger was responding to a call for assistance from another officer when the police ambulance he was driving collided at 8th and Center with a squad car also responding to the call for backup. The gas tank of the ambulance burst into flames when it was struck from the rear by the squad car. Officer Draeger was able to free himself from the vehicle, but his gasoline soaked clothes caught fire.

Officer Draeger was rushed to the burn center at St. Mary’s Hospital with third degree burns over 75% of his body. His partner and two police officers in the squad car received minor injuries.

Officer Michael Draeger was 26-years-old and had served with the Milwaukee Police Department for 5 years. He was married with two children.

wants to remind everyone this holiday season to !

During the Christmas and New Year holiday periods, we often see a rise in drunk-driving deaths. In fact, recent data shows December drunk driving deaths are the highest in almost 15 years. As a result, you'll likely see more law enforcement on the roads as part of Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Drinking and driving will change your whole world. Hand the keys to a sober driver before your world gets turned upside down by a DUI… or worse.
