"Pop, pop, pop": Witnesses share details of officer-involved shooting

We're learning more details about the incident that lead to police fatally shooting a Milwaukee man.

It happened Monday evening on 10th and Burnham on the city's south side.

The day after, officers were back on the scene.

The memories remain fresh for those who witnessed it.

"I was in my living room, looking out my west window just looking and all a sudden I heard this pop, pop, pop," said a woman who asked to remain anonymous.

According to Milwaukee police, they were trying to conduct a traffic stop on a 48-year-old man, wanted on two warrants.

Witnesses told CBS 58 News, officers surrounded the car and other people were in the car.

"The gentleman opened the door halfway, and put a gun to his head...to his head," said Isaías Ramirez.

The sound of the gunshots caused some to run for cover.

However, one neighbor recorded the aftermath from his window. The cell phone video shows paramedics giving the suspect multiple chest compressions, but they were not able to revive him.

The name of the victim has yet to be released.
