Sources tell Wisconsin Right Now that police were chasing a fleeing homicide suspect. No officers were injured, but the suspect was wounded.
The carnage downtown is at the same general intersection where multiple shootings broke out last summer. Wisconsin Right Now was there to capture some of them, as undermanned police officers put themselves in harm’s way without proper staffing from higher-ups.
