MILWAUKEE — 18-year-old Milwaukee Police Aide Qushawn Thompson has been charged with operating a vehicle without the owner's consent.

A woman reported her car, a blue Dodge Caravan, stolen on Nov. 20. The next day, police responded to a report of shots fired. As they were looking for casings, police heard screeching tires and saw the missing vehicle make an erratic turn into a parking lot.

When police pulled out behind the vehicle, the suspect and two other passengers in the vehicle fled on foot. Police ordered the suspect at gunpoint to stop. Thompson did.

At the time of the incident, police observed large black socks on Thompson's hands. He was also employed by Milwaukee Police Department as a police aide. His assignment included working at the stolen auto desk.

The two other suspects in the vehicle were identified as juveniles.
