MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Three Milwaukee police officers with District 7 were involved in a shooting with a suspect near 47th and Hampton on Sunday night, Dec. 15.
Just after 8 p.m., Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said officers attempted to pull a vehicle over for reckless driving. The driver did not stop and led police on a short pursuit around the block before striking a light pole.
"Upon striking what I believe is a light pole, the suspect exited the vehicle and immediately fired shots at officers, three officers fired back, striking the suspect," said Morales.
Morales said the 23-year-old man was taken to the hospital and is listed in "serious or grave condition."
None of the officers involved in the shooting were hurt.
"I can tell you there was a firearm recovered by the suspect," said Morales.
The officers involved have been on the department for nine, five, and four years, and will be placed on administrative leave or administrative duty, per department protocol.
As part of the Milwaukee Area Investigative Team, the Wauwatosa Police Department will lead the investigation into the shooting.
