UW-Milwaukee shots, police officer shot a man on campus Tuesday.
A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee police officer shot a man on campus Tuesday morning, the school said.
The shooting happened just before 7 a.m. by the Fine Arts complex.
UW-Milwaukee Police Chief Joe LeMire said the officers were called for a report of a man sleeping in the building. Police shot the man during a physical altercation. Police said the man had a weapon.
The man who was shot was not connected to UW-Milwaukee, the school said. The man was taken to the hospital, where he was in stable condition, LeMire said.
The officers were also taken to area hospitals with minor injuries.
No students or staff were hurt.
The university sent a safety alert to students around 7 a.m. that read:
“UWM Safe Alert: Shots fired by the fine arts loading dock. Shelter in place or avoid the area.”
The school then tweeted the following update:
“UWM Safe Alert: Subject is no longer at large. Please stay away from the Fine Arts Complex.”
UW-Milwaukee is on spring break right now, so no classes were in session.
The Oak Creek Police Department is in charge of the investigation, so if anyone has any information, they are asked to call 414-766-7631.
