VILLAGE OF WAUWATOSA -- The Wauwatosa Police Department confirms Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena, 30, was shot to death early Monday morning. A fellow officer found her body near the intersection of Underwood and Harmonee near Wauwatosa's downtown area.

Police were first alerted something was wrong when Sebena didn't respond to a call for service shortly before 5:00 a.m. Officers found the dead Sebena with multiple gunshot wounds to her body. Wauwatosa Police Lt. Gerald Witkowski would not give a specific location as to where the officer's body was found, but it appears to have happened near the intersection of Underwood and Harmonee.
