VIDEO: Milwaukee Officer Saved by Armor in Shooting, Suspect Killed

A Milwaukee police officer shot by an armed robbery suspect Thursday night has been released from the hospital. He was saved from potentially mortal wounds by his body armor.

Police were called to an auto parts store at approximately 8:30 p.m. near 76th Street and Mill Road, WTMJ TV reports.

Officials said the suspect shot at the officer during a chase and was later fatally shot by other officers. Milwaukee police identified him Friday as 38-year-old Burt T. Johnson, who is a convicted felon.

I didn't hear about any riots or BLM B.S. about this so I assume, since article does not say, that the suspect was non-minority so no one cares, if he is white then he is a criminal, if he were minority then media would say he was a troubled youth or some sort of trash. BLM would demonstrate, burn and loot and call for the officers head since the suspect was obviously a poor student who was shot for "no reason" by the racist police.
