BROWN DEER -- The Brown Deer police chief spoke publicly for the first time after one of his officers shot a man last week.
The shooting happened Monday afternoon after an incident on a Milwaukee County Transit System bus. Police said an MCTS driver flagged down officers on north 60th Street about a disruptive passenger.
"The driver asked the officers to remove the passenger, as she felt his behavior was placing other passengers at risk," Kass said.
What happened after that has not been revealed.
Chief Michael Kass said the suspect is still in the hospital in stable condition.
Kass also said authorities are reviewing surveillance video from the bus and are looking for witnesses that saw the incident unfold.
The officer involved was a 26-year-old woman that has been on the police force for 5 years. She and her 33-year-old partner were both treated for some injuries, but are expected to be OK. Authorities have not said how the officers were hurt, but said they were not shot.
Both officers have been placed on administrative leave while Milwaukee police take over the investigation.
