The Milwaukee Police Department is investigating a shots fired incident that occurred on Saturday, November 28, 2020, at approximately 6:10 p.m., on the 4000 block of W. Center Street.

At approximately 6:00 p.m., uniformed Milwaukee Police officers in a marked squad car observed a vehicle operating in a reckless manner in the area of N. 37th Street and W. North Avenue. The officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop of the vehicle but the driver refused to stop, fled and a vehicle pursuit ensued.

The initial squad lost sight of the suspect vehicle but, shortly thereafter, another Milwaukee Police squad observed the auto still operating recklessly in the area of N. Sherman Boulevard and W. Locust Street. That squad attempted to stop the auto that continued to flee eastbound on W. Center Street, where it subsequently crashed into an embankment in the 4100 block of W. Center Street.

The suspects fled on foot from the vehicle and a foot pursuit ensued. During the foot pursuit, the driver of the vehicle produced a firearm and discharged it. In response, an officer returned fire. The suspect, an 18-year-old male, was taken into custody without further incident. The suspect’s firearm was recovered. Neither the suspect nor the officer were injured in this incident; however, due to the crash, the suspect was taken to a local hospital for medical clearance as a precaution.

A second occupant of the vehicle, a 16-year-old male, was also taken into custody. A check of the suspect vehicle revealed it was reported stolen.

The officer involved is a 45-year-old male with over 7 years of service. The officer was placed on administrative duty.

This an ongoing investigation. The Criminal Investigation Bureau of the Milwaukee Police Department is investigating this incident.

If anyone has any additional information please contact Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-TIPS.

#MKEPD The Milwaukee Police Department never forgets those members who paid the ultimate price in service to the community. Today we honor the members killed 103 years ago on November 24, 1917.

Prior to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, the single deadliest event in national law enforcement history occurred in Milwaukee on November 24, 1917, when nine officers and two citizens were killed in a bomb blast. The bomb exploded inside the assembly of the Central Police Station at Oneida Street (today Wells Street) and Broadway. Police were not the intended target.

The 20-pound bomb was discovered in a passageway between the Italian Evangelical Church located at 355 North Van Buren Street and the neighboring mission house by the 10-year old daughter of the church cleaning lady on Saturday morning. In the evening, a young man named Sam Mazzone, a member of the church along with an unnamed man, brought the device to the police station.

Station Keeper Henry Deckert took the device from the young men and brought it to the lieutenant’s office and then into the assembly. A number of detectives who had just answered to roll call were in the room. Several of them were examining the infernal device when its hell wand fury was unleashed.

Of the ten officers who were in the police station assembly room at the time of the explosion, eight were killed and two were injured. The names of the eight men killed are: Detective Stephen H. Stecher, Detective Charles Seehawer, Detective David O’Brien, Detective Albert Templin, Detective Paul Weiler, Detective Fred W. Kaiser, Detective Frank Caswin and Station Keeper Henry Deckert.

Injured were Detective Louis Hartman and Detective Herman Bergin.

A watch on one of the men stopped at 7:57 p.m.

Above the assembly was the switchboard room where Operator Edward Spindler was killed by shrapnel blasting through the floor. Killed near the entrance was citizen Catherine Walker, who was making a complaint against an ex-boyfriend. The initial newspaper headline of 11 dead, was attributed to the level of destruction caused by the bomb.

In the Lieutenant’s office, off the assembly, were Lt. Robert Flood and Detective Bart Maloney. Both escaped injury. Also uninjured were the eighteen prisoners in the cell room.

It was believed that the bomb was placed at the church by sympathizers of the anarchists who were arrested in connection with the Bay View riot of September 9th, 1917. An Italian gang attempted to disrupt a patriotic rally led by the pastor of the church. The anarchists had been threatening the group when one man pulled a revolver and shot at a detective. Another detective drew his weapon and killed the man. Then several members of the gang drew guns and began firing. In the end two alleged anarchists were killed and five persons injured, including two detectives.

#MKEPD The Milwaukee Police Department never forgets those members who paid the ultimate price in service to the community. Today we honor Sgt. Michael R. Tourmo who died in the line of duty November 18, 1990.

Sgt. Michael Tourmo was responding to a call of a burglary in progress at the North Avenue Smoke Shop, 2533 W. North Ave, at 6:55 Sunday morning. He was the first officer on scene and chased two suspects from the building though several yards. During the chase, one of the suspects fired as many as eight or nine shots at Tourmo and one round struck him in the head.

Additional officers joined the chase and one suspect surrendered to police. The other suspect continued running but a short distance later threw the gun and surrendered. A Third suspect who was not being chased was arrested nearby in connection with the break-in. The three men ages, 20, 29 and 30 all had extensive criminal records.

Sgt. Michael Tourmo had served the Milwaukee Police Department just short of 18 years before he was killed. He was 36 years old. He left behind his wife Brenda and three children, all under the age of 5.

We remember.
