Police: Armed Man Barricades Himself in Apartment Before Surrendering


From the South Milwaukee Police Department …

On the evening of February 6, 2018, the South Milwaukee Police Department was notified of a man walking the hallways at 2825 South Chicago Avenue, while holding and pointing a rifle while wearing body armor and a helmet. Upon police arrival, the 62 year old man had barricaded himself in his apartment.  He claimed to be armed with several guns and wearing body armor. The South Shore Joint Tactical Unit responded to the scene.  After talking to the subject on the phone, he eventually surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident. No persons were harmed during this incident.  This case continues to be investigated and will be referred the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the near future for possible charges.
