A suspect is in custody after shots were fired near the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin shortly after noon Thursday, according to an email and text alert sent to employees.
The suspect, a 22-year-old man, suffered a wrist wound, according to a law enforcement source. No one else was injured.
The incident began around 11:11 a.m. when police received a tip about a wanted suspect, the source said. The man ended up at Children’s about an hour later.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said his department got the call of an active shooter on the seventh floor of the hospital at 11:59 a.m. When they responded, they found that Milwaukee police already were there seeking a wanted felon believed to be in possession of a firearm. They found him in the neonatal intensive care unit on the seventh floor. He was holding a baby. When police told the man he was under arrest, he apparently put down the baby and fled.
The man had a gun and turned toward officers in a threatening manner, Clarke said, but did not fire at officers.
Officers fired several times. The man was being treated for injuries, Clarke said. The baby and mother were not harmed, he said
“This is not a situation where a guy came in to shoot somebody,” Clarke said.
The 22-year-old has felony convictions, mostly for drugs, going back to 2009, according to online court records. He was convicted twice in 2009 and again in 2011, records show.
