MILWAUKEE — Henry's on Belleview will host a benefit for fallen MPD Officer Matthew Rittner on Tuesday.

Rittner's wife, Caroline, used to bartend at Henry's, and Rittner proposed marriage to her at the bar.

Rittner was shot in the line of duty Feb. 6 while serving a search warrant. He also had served two tours in Iraq with the Marines.

Henry's is asking people to attend the benefit for Rittner's family from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. There will be free appetizers and drink specials.
