VIDEO: Wisconsin Officer Returns from Shooting Leave and Has Another OIS

Kenosha, Wis., police say the officer who pulled the trigger in a fatal officer-involved shooting incident this weekend was involved in a non-fatal officer-involved shooting incident earlier this month.

The incident began just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday, when officers attempted to arrest Aaron Siler — wanted on an active felony probation and parole warrant. Siler, 26, initiated a vehicle pursuit with officers, and after crashing his vehicle, he took off running. Officers pursued Siler on foot, and when Siler was confronted he armed himself with a weapon. One officer fired his handgun, striking and killing Siler.

Police say there were citizen witnesses to this officer-involved shooting, WITI TV reports.

“The first thing you hear is an officer say ‘put down, get down,’ and he said it twice, and I heard six shots after that,” a witness said.

The involved officer had just returned to work on the day of the shooting of Aaron Siler. He was on leave as a result of a previous officer-involved shooting on March 4.

In that earlier incident, police say a man advanced on officers armed with two knives. That man was shot and survived his wounds.

Both shootings were justified shootings. The Officer was just doing his job and doing it correctly. Both were clean cut use of lethal force incidents. Claims by family members not involved with either incident have no idea what they are talking about.
