MILWAUKEE — A 35-year-old man was identified as the Milwaukee Police Department officer who was shot Wednesday morning on the city's south side.
He was a member of MPD for 17 years.
The officer, part of the tactical enforcement unit, was serving a search warrant Wednesday morning in the 2900 block of South 12th Street when he was shot.
He was transported to Froedtert Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A 26-year-old Milwaukee man is in custody.
