MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee police officer shot an armed man late Tuesday night near 32nd and Garfield on the city's north side.

The man was hit several times, but was in stable condition with non life-threatening injuries.

According to Capt. Christopher Domagalski, the incident started when plainclothes officers were checking the area of North 27th and Hadley for a suspect wanted on a federal warrant.

The officers found the suspect's vehicle, and followed it. As they followed the vehicle, the plainclothes officers called for assistance from uniformed squads.

As the suspect's vehicle was parking in the 3100 block of West Garfield, uniformed officers approached and ordered the occupants to turn off the vehicle and show their hands.

Domagalski said one of the occupants got out of the vehicle and began to run.

A uniformed officer chased the suspect, and according to Domagalski, saw that the suspect had a gun in his hand. "The suspect turned on the officer," Domagalski said. That's when the officer fired shots. "The suspect was hit, and was subsequently taken into custody."

Police recovered the suspect's gun at the shooting scene.

Two other people were taken into custody from the vehicle. And another gun was found in the vehicle.

Domagalski said the officer involved in the shooting is 32 years old and has 7 years experience on the force.

Police did not release the suspect's name or age, but said he would likely face several charges including being a felon in possession of a firearm.
