Here we go again! According to a report out of Milwaukee, A police officer shot and killed an armed suspect Saturday night during a foot chase on the city’s north side, triggering off a violent confrontation between police and crowds protesting the shooting which resulted in a gas station set on fire and other businesses also torched following an hours-long standoff between rioters and police, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Excerpt From Fox News:
City leaders pleaded for calm after the violence erupted, with Mayor Tom Barrett imploring parents of anyone at the scene to “get them home right now” after at least four businesses burned and one officer was hurt. At a news conference just after midnight, Barrett said the situation appeared to be calming after a riotous scene in which as many as 100 protesters skirmished with police, torching a squad car and tossing a brick through the window of another. Police mounted at least two efforts to push the protesters out of an intersection at the heart of the violence.
