A stabbing murder suspect in Milwaukee returned to the scene of the crime last night in Milwaukee and launched a second attack on police on the scene.
The attack failed, spectacularly.
Milwaukee police officers fatally wounded a homicide suspect on the city’s north side early Saturday, July 23rd.
MPS says officers responded to the neighborhood near 5th and Clarke just before 12:30 a.m. to investigate a stabbing. The victim, a 64-year-old Milwaukee man, was stabbed by the suspect, a 49-year-old Milwaukee man.
The suspect fled the area and the victim died from stab wounds while being taken to a hospital.
As the investigation continued, officials say the suspect returned to the scene around 2:15 a.m. and charged at officers outside of a residence. He was holding a knife.
Multiple officers discharged their firearms striking and fatally wounding the suspect. A knife was recovered next to the suspect.
It will probably come as no surprise that the murder suspect who went down in a hail of bullets is a repeat offender convicted felon who was on probation for strangulation. Those who earn a death by gunfire are rarely first-time offenders or even first-time violent offenders, but are often violent predators who have become progressively worse over a lifetime of crime.
Multiple officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave as is standard procedure.
It is not known how many shots were fired at this time to neutralize the suspect.
