FRANKLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- An armed suspect is dead after carjacking two separate drivers and leading police on pursuits in Franklin/Oak Creek Friday morning, Sept. 3.
According to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, just after 8 a.m., a 31-year-old Milwaukee man armed with a gun carjacked another man and directed him to the Walmart store near 27th and Holt. Both went inside and returned to the vehicle.
The sheriff's office says the two then went to a nearby gas station and the victim went inside and alerted an employee to call the police. The two returned to another Walmart store -- near 27th and Sycamore -- where the victim once again notified an employee to call police.
