A suspect is in critical condition Monday morning, after being shot by a Milwaukee Police officer. Investigators say the man charged at an officer with a knife, leading to the third officer-involved shooting in just a week.
Sunday night the District 7 officer was called to check out a home reported to have some family trouble.
When he arrived at the home near 37th and Burleigh, he was confronted by a man who charged at him with a knife. The officer was forced to use his weapon and shot the suspect.
Deputy Nick Theofanopoulos was en route to a work assignment at a hospital, where he was expected to guard an inmate.
