Three suburban Milwaukee police officers were shot inside a Raddison Hotel Saturday night. All three are expected to recover and a suspect is in custody.

The Wauwatosa Police Department says three of its officers were shot when they responded to a shots fired call on the second floor of the hotel, TMJ4 reports.

Officers began checking the rooms on that floor for injured people, said Wauwatosa police Lt. Shane Wrucke at the briefing. While checking one room, the officers were met with gunfire.

The wounded officers are:

  • A 32-year-old with 11 years of experience. He suffered two gunshot wounds
  • A 31-year-old with 8 years of experience. He suffered a bullet graze
  • A 32-year-old with 7 years of experience. He also suffered two gunshot wounds

The name of the suspect and the names of the wounded officers have not been released.
