Two plainclothes Milwaukee Police officers shot and killed a suspect who attempted to steal the car they were in while staking out a murder suspect Tuesday morning, sources told "The Dan O'Donnell Show."
Three plainclothes officers were sitting in an unmarked car near 7th and Maple and watching a home where Victor Cintron, a suspect in a Friday homicide, was believed to be hiding.
"Two suspects, one of whom was masked and armed with a handgun, approached the vehicle occupied by a detective and two officers assigned to the Criminal Investigation Bureau--Specialized Investigations, Division," Milwaukee Police Inspector Terrence Gordon said in a news release. "Officers in the vehicle fired shots at the armed and masked suspect, fatally wounding him."
The second suspect was arrested after a brief foot chase. Neither suspect has yet been identified. None of the three officers was injured in the incident.
Sources tell the "Dan O'Donnell Show" that investigators are working off of the assumption that the suspects approached the undercover officers' car with the intention of stealing it. The Milwaukee Department has not confirmed this and says only that the Waukesha Police Department is investigating the shooting.
