Shotspotter helps police arrest intoxicated felon with gun

ShotSpotter technology helped Milwaukee Police Officers arrest a convicted felon with a gun who was intoxicated on the 4100 block of N. 27th Street . 
ShotSpotter, a gunfire locator system that pinpoints precise locations from which gunshots were fired, alerted officers to a shot fired around 3:35 a.m. on August 22. 
When officers arrived at the scene, they saw a man walking with a gun in his hand. 
As the officers approached him, the Milwaukee man threw the gun into a nearby field. The suspect, a 28-year-old and a convicted felon on previous drug charges, was taken into custody. The 9mm handgun he threw in the field was recovered and a breathalyzer test revealed the suspect’s Blood Alcohol Content was .24.
