A suspect charged in the Thursday shooting of a Milwaukee Police Department officer had multiple open felony cases and an active warrant against him, county documents show.

Jetrin Rodthong, 23, faces pending charges after the shooting and has several open felony cases dating back to 2020 in which he was charged with resisting or obstructing officers, bail jumping, driving or operating a vehicle without the owner's consent and drug possession, among others, and released on bond, Fox News reports.

MPD Officer Herbert Davis, 26, was hospitalized after the shooting but has since been released.

Davis was responding to reports of an injured or sick person Thursday and arrived at the location to discover a person slumped over in a vehicle, a press release states.

Once Davis approached the individual later identified as Rodthong, the suspect allegedly attempted to flee the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with Davis.

Rodthong then apparently entered Davis' police vehicle, used the car to flee the scene, crashed into another motorist and attempted to evade officers on foot. Officers eventually caught up to him and apprehended him without incident.
