On Wednesday 4-28-10 at approx. 6:35PM, District Two Police Officers [redacted] and [redacted], while responding to a call for service, discharged their service weapons at a suspect, Eddie L. Jones, causing his death. This incident was thoroughly investigated by both the Criminal Investigation Bureau and the District Attorney's office, and what follows is a summary of the investigation and ifs findings. It is not exhaustive of a!I details, and for a complete understanding of all aspects of the investigation, please refer to Milwaukee Police incident reports filed under 1R1011B0178.Both officers were interviewed on the night of the incident by ClB detectives, as well as District Attorney John Chisolm and personnel from his staff. Both officers gave statements that were consistent with one another, witness accounts and the physical evidence, and their statements are summarized as follows:On Wednesday 4-28-10, POs [redaced] and [redacted] were assigned as partners on Squad [redacted] early shift uniformed squad, with [redacted] driving. Between the beginning of their shift at 3:00PM and approx. 6:31PM, they responded to and handled several routine calls for service. At 6:31PM, they were dispatched to an assignment of "Battery- Cutting" at 1539 S. 9th St., with the information that a man was chasing a woman and was armed with a knife.PO [redacted] statement indicated that upon their arrival at this assignment, he observed numerous people who were in the street and on the sidewalks, and that several of them waved down the squad. He asked the citizens where the subject with the knife was, and they pointed towards a house that was just northeast of where the squad was parked. PO [redacted] and his partner then got out of the squad and walked in that direction. As they did so, he observed a heavyset black male sitting on the front steps of a porch, and he also observed that the male was holding another person, a black female, across his lap as one would hold a child. He could see that the female was bleeding from her face, and was agitated. At the same time, he saw that the male was holding a large butcher knife ln his right hand, and so he drew his service weapon (Smith and Wesson M&P .40 caliber handgun) and ordered the suspect to drop the knife by yelling this command several times.The suspect did not comply with his commands, and responded verbally to the officer's commands with words to the effect of "back up." The suspect then raised the knife in hls right hand, and PO [redacted] believed at that time that he was going to stab the female with the knife. The female was still laying across his lap, and the suspect's upper chest and head were isolated. He estimated his distance from the suspect as 10-15 feet. PO [redacted] then took aim at the suspect, and fired his weapon at him. He could not recall how many shots he fired (later examination of his weapon revealed that he fired seven rounds.) He a!so stated that his partner was standing to his right, and believes that she also fired at the suspect.PO [redacted] observed the suspect slump backwards after being shot, and the female immediately got up from his lap. He went to the female and checked on her condition. He notified his dispatcher via KSA radio that they had fired shots, and requested medical attention for the suspect. A Milwaukee Fire Dept. unit had been staged up the block, and they immediately responded to the scene and began tending to the suspect. Because of the immediate response of MFD personnel, he did not attempt any life saving measures on the suspect.Numerous other District Two squads responded to the scene very rapidly. The other responding squads began to take control of the scene, and PO [redacted] was escorted to a squad by other responding officers, where he remained until the arrival of CIB personnel. At no time did he talk to PO [redacted] prior to being interviewed.PO [redacted] was likewise interviewed by ClB personnel and DA Chisolm and his staff. She made a statement that was very consistent with that of PO [redacted]. She related that they were dispatched to the battery cutting assignment. As they were responding to the scene, she (as the officer not driving) was reading the CAD updates out loud, so that they both knew what they were responding to. When they arrived in the 1500 block of S. 9th St., she observed numerous people running around in the street in a chaotic scene. The squad came to a stop and she immediately exited and drew her service weapon, due to the nature of the assignment.There were several people pointing and yelling "over there" indicating in a northeast direction. She observed a black male subject holding a black female subject on his lap. She could see that the male was holding a large knife in his right hand, and was making motions as though he was stabbing the female. PO [redacted] was approx. 20-30 feet from the suspect at this time, and she pointed her weapon at the suspect and continued walking towards him. As she was doing so, she yelled at the suspect several times to drop the knife, but he ignored her commands. She also recalled that her partner was standing to her left.At some point she observed that the female was bleeding, and she feared that the suspect was going to stab her with the knife. The female's position was low enough on his body that she had a clear target of his chest and head. She took aim and fired two or three rounds at the suspect (examination of her weapon revealed that she fired two rounds.) She saw the suspect fall backwards and drop the knife, and the female got up and ran away. She approached the suspect and kicked the knife away from him. She also got on the radio and called for medical assistance for the suspect, as she could see he had been shot. She put on latex gloves in preparation for pertorming medical attention on the suspect, however a MFD engine pulled up almost immediately and began attending to the suspect. Other MPD squads also quickly arrived on the scene, and she was escorted to Sgt. [redacted] squad, where she remained until the arrival of CIB personnel. She did not interact with PO [redacted] during this time.CIB detectives subsequently interviewed the female subject of this incident, [redacted]. Her interview revealed that she and the suspect Eddie Jones had been previously engaged in a relationship, however they had split up due to his violent nature. He had been arrested recently for a domestic violence incident against her, and that she had obtained a restraining order against him. Over the past couple of days, Jones called her numerous times, telling her to drop the restraining order, and threatening to kil! her and her new boyfriend if she did not. She did report these threats to the police.On this date at approx. 6:00PM, she returned to her house, and upon walking towards her house, she saw Jones approach her and someone yelled for her to run and that Jones had a knife. She ran away, but Jones caught up to her and the two struggled. He pushed her to the ground and held the knife to her throat, while making verbal threats to kill her. As this was going on, she saw the police arrive at the scene, and the officers subsequently shot Jones.lt should be noted that [redacted] was highly intoxicated and equally agitated at the time she was interviewed, and while she did not provide a great level of detail, what she did tell was consistent with the officers' statements, other witness statements and the physical evidence.Another citizen eyewitness to the incident [redacted] was interviewed as part of this investigation. [redacted] lives across the street from the scene, and he observed the incident from his front porch and yard area. Additionally, he recorded the incident on his camera phone, which he voluntarily turned over to detectives in order to extract the video. The video is of surprisingly good quality, and shows the events that occurred prior to police arrival, as well as the arrival the squad on the scene. It clearly shows the squad pull up to the scene, shows the two officers exit the squad, approach the suspect with their guns drawn, and order the suspect to drop the knife. It shows the officers fire several shots at the suspect, but as soon as the shots are heard, the camera operator moves the camera away from the scene, as though he were startled by the shots. He regains his composure and continues filming the aftermath of the shooting, including the arrival of MFD and additional squads on the scene.The actions of both officers was clearly captured on the video, and it is consistent in all ways with both of their accounts. This video is in the possession of MPD should it be needed for review or training purposes.Numerous other citizen witnesses were interviewed, and all provided substantially similar versions of events.Subsequent to their statements on the night of the incident, all standard protocols for an officer-involved shooting were complied with, including collecting the officers' weapons, issuing new weapons to them, placing them on administrative duty, and conveying them for drug testing.On 4-29-10, Dr. Rogalska of the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy on the suspect Jones. The cause of death was deermined to be from numerous gunshot wounds, and the manner of death ruled a homicide. A total of 10 gunshot wounds (entrance and exit) wounds were noted to the suspect's head, neck and chest. A total of seven bullets, as well as several small bullet fragments were recovered from Jones' body during the autopsy.On Tuesday 5-4-10, this incident was formally reviewed by DA Chisolm for the purposes of determining the legality of the officers' actions. DA Chisolm indicated that it was his legal opinion that both officers acted properly and within the guidelines of the !aw when they used deadly force to stop the life-threatening actions of the suspect Eddie Jones.

This report is submitted by Lt. Jeff Point of the GIB Metro- Homicide Unit, early shift.On Monday 12-20-10 at approx. 12:21AM, District Seven Police Officers [redacted] and [redacted] while responding to a ca!I for service, discharged their service weapons at a suspect, Dionne A Brown, causing his death. This incident was thoroughly investigated by both the Criminal Investigation Bureau and the District Attorney's office, and what follows is a summary of the investigation and it's findings. It is not exhaustive of all details, and for a complete understanding of all aspects of the investigation, please refer to Milwaukee Police incident reports filed under IR103540005.Both officers were interviewed ClB detectives, as well as District Attorney John Chisolm and personnel from his staff. Both officers gave statements that were consistent with one another, witness accounts and the physical evidence, and their statements are summarized as follows:PO [redacted] stated that on Sunday 12-19-10, he was working on Squad [redacted] with his partner, PO [redacted]. Their hours that day were 7:00PM to 3:00AM. It should be noted that they had worked an overtime assignment from 3:00PM to 7:00PM, prior to their shift. They were both in full uniform at the time of this assignment.At approx. 11:46PM, they noted that among the backlog of assignments was an entry complaint at [redacted] and they volunteered for this assignment. Upon their arrival, they met with the complainant, [redacted] who related to them that her ex-boyfriend, Dionne Brown, had stolen items from her house, and that she could hear movement up in her attic and believed that Brown was hiding in the attic. She further informed the officers that Brown had a warrant for his arrest, and that is why he was hiding. She then directed the officers to the 2nd floor of the apartment, where the attic could be accessed via a scuttle hole in the ceiling. The officers opened the scuttle hole, and called into the attic and called out to Brown by name and told him to come down, but they got no response. PO [redacted] then used a chair and pulled himself up into the attic. The attic was not lighted, so used his flashlight to look around. He also drew his service weapon. The floor of the attic was covered with approx. 18 inches of blown insulation. PO [redacted] observed what he believed to be a person laying on the ground ln the west portion of the attic, trying to conceal himself under the insulation. He could see the insulation rising and falling with the suspect' s breathing. At about this same time, he saw an 11 inch kitchen knife laying on the floor near the attic opening, and he picked this knife up and moved it further away, to keep it out of reach of the suspect.After moving the knife, PO [redacted] holstered his weapon and drew his expandable baton. He used the baton to probe where the suspect (later ID' d as Brown) was hiding by tapping him. Brown then began to sit up, exposing his face, and PO [redacted] took several steps back to increase the distance between them. Brown stated to PO [redacted], "Man, you broke my nose." PO [redacted] began to order Brown to come out and show himself, but Brown did not.At some point, PO [redacted] became aware that another officer (PO [redacted]) had entered the attic, and was standing to his left and behind him. Brown then sat up and rotated his body so he was facing PO [redacted]. Brown reached into his front waistband with his right hand, and made a deliberate motion as though he was removingsomething from his waistband. Due to the insulation, PO [redacted] could not see what he was reaching for, but based on the movement, he believed Brown was reaching for a weapon. Both officers then yelled for Brown to show his hands several times.After about 25 seconds of this, Brown suddenly lunged at PO [redacted]. He both lunged with his body, and extended his right arm towards PO [redacted], causing [redacted] to fear that he had a weapon. Fearing for his safety and his partner's, he immediatelv began firing his weapon at Brown. He fired his handgun until the slide locked back. He was also aware that PO [redacted] was also firing his own weapon. PO [redacted] took a step to his left to avoid the lunge of Brown. Brown fell past him and fell down in a facedown position. Both officers approached Brown and handcuffed him behind his back. They then called down to the other officers and requested medical attention, and that the suspect was PNB.At about this time, PO [redacted] felt coldness around his left buttock.He checked his body and found a hole in his pants in that area, and he realized that he had been shot. The bullet wound was a graze wound, and was minor enough that PO [redacted] was able to lower himself out of the attic. He was subsequently taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was treated and released for his minor injury.Prior to being conveyed to the hospital, PO [redacted] duty belt and handgun was taken from him and secured. It was subsequently examined by detectives, and was found to be unloaded with an empty magazine inserted. This is consistent with his account of firing to lock back, but having not reloaded. His handgun and magazines were invventoried and a replacement handgun issued to him.PO [redacted] was also interviewed about his actions in this incident, and he gave the following account. PO [redacted] was working on Sunday 12-19-10, and was working on Squad [redacted] with his partner, PO [redacted]. Their hours of work were 7:00PM to 3:00AM. Both officers were in full MPD uniform at the time of their shift. At approx. 12:15AM, they were on patrol, and they heard PO [redacted] of Squad [redacted] requesting another squad and a sergeant at their assignment, and they volunteered. En route, they read the CAD call for this assignment and learned that they were going to an entry complaint and that the caller was irate.When they got to the apartment, they went inside. He observed PO [redacted] standing near the top of the stairs, and he was told that PO [redacted] was up in the attic with a possible suspect, and volunteered to go up into the attic to help PO [redacted]. He climbed up through the scuttle hole into the attic. Once he got into the attic, he could see that [redacted] was in the attic, and was pointing his flashlight at a suspect who was under the insulation. [redacted] could only see the suspect' s face, and [redacted] could see that he was a black male. It was very dark, and he also used his flashlight to light up the suspect. He and [redacted] both yelled for the suspect to show his hands. They were about six to eight feet away from him at this time, and they moved closer to him, to take him into custody. The attic space they were in was very small and cramped, limiting their ability to move around.PO [redacted] saw the suspect (Dionne Brown) sit up, and begin looking around him as though looking for something. He then reached with his right hand towards his waistband, as though he was reaching for a weapon. PO [redacted] feared that Brown was reaching for a weapon, and he and PO [redacted] were in close proximity to Brown. Brown then lunged towards [redacted] and thrust his right arm forward, in a motion as though to stab him. He then drew his service we·aoon and began firing at Brown in an effort to stop his aggressive actions. [redacted] was also firing at the suspect, and while doing so, he stepped in front of [redacted] so [redacted] stopped firing. [redacted] then stepped out of this line of fire, and [redacted] could see that Brown was still swinging his arm at PO [redacted] as though trying to cut him with a knife, so he continued to fire at Brown. He fired until his weapon locked back on the empty magainze, and then reloaded it.At this time, he could see that Brown had stopped moving and was laying face down, and did not apoear to be a threat any longer. He then re-holstered his weapon, and both officers handcuffed the suspect. They then yelled down to the other officers that they were OK. PO [redacted] then informed [redacted] that he thought he had been shot in the buttocks, and [redacted] observed a tear and blood on his pants near his left buttocks. At this time he realized that he had probably accidentally shot PO during this incident, and told this to [redacted].Very shortly after this happened, PO [redacted] heard the voice of Sgt. [redacted] coming from downstairs. Sgt. [redacted] egan directing the actions of the officers and asking them questions about the suspect's condition and what happened. Sgt. [redacted] instructed [redacted] to come down from the attic, and he did so. He was taken by Sgt. [redacted] to Sgt. [redacted]'s squad, where he remained until ClB arrived.PO [redacted] issued Smith & Wesson handgun was examined by detectives at the scene. His handgun was loaded with a magazine and 13 rounds, plus one round in the chamber. One of the magazines in his pouch was empty (which he recovered after the shooting.) This is consistent with his account that he fired his gun until the slide locked back. His handgun and magazines were inventoried, and a replacement handgun issued to him.Subsequent to their statements on the night of the incident, all standard protocols for an officer-involved shooting were complied with, including inventorying the officers' weapons, issuing new weapons to them, placing them on administrative duty, and conveying them for drug testing.PO [redacted] partner on this day was PO [redacted]. PO [redacted] was also interviewed, and gave the following account. He and PO [redacted] were working togetner on this night, and they responded to the call for another squad at [redacted]. When they got to the apartment and went in, there were two citizens in the lower unit, and PO [redacted] was standing at the top of the stairs. PO [redacted] told them that his partner, PO [redacted] was up in the attic with the suspect, and he asked one of them to go up and help him, and PO [redacted] volunteered.

His statement was consistent with that of other officers, witness accounts and the physical evidence, and his statement is summarized as follows:On Tuesday 9-14~10, PO [redaced] was working on Squad [redacted with his partner, PO [redacted], working late power hours, 7PM-3AM. Both officers were in uniform and driving a marked MPD squad. He recalled that they were on patrol, when they heard and responded to a call from another squad requesting backup at a Battery DV assignment at 25th/Wells. The suspect was supposed to be inside of a house there, armed with a shotgun. Sq. 3430 and several other squads responded to the backup, where they learned that the suspect was located inside of 755 N. 25th St. The officers formulated a strategy to arrest the suspect, and PO [redacted] and his partner were assigned to rear containment on the house. The officers approached the house, and POs [redacted], along with PO [redacted] proceeded to the rear of the house for containment, while other officers approached the front of the house.The three officers went to the rear, and PO [redacted] drew his service weapon due to the possibility of the suspect being armed. At the rear of the house, he could see an illuminated 2nd story window with a box fan in the window. At the same time he could hear the other officers at the front of the house attempting to make contact with the suspect. After about 10 seconds, he saw the box fan being removed from the window, and a black male suspect, slender and in his 20s, wearing a white T-shirt appeared in the window. The suspect was holding a shotgun with both hands, standing in a bladed stance and pointing the shotgun in the direction of PO [redacted]. PO [redacted] ordered the suspect to "drop the gun" and believes that his partner also made this command. The suspect did not drop the gun, and PO [redacted], fearing that the suspect was going to shoot at them, fired one shot from his handgun at the suspect. He was about 8-10 feet away from the outside wall of the house at this time. After the shot the suspect retreated back into the house, and PO [redacted] heard another officer announcing the shots fired. PO [redacted] maintained his position on rear containment, and a short time later he heard the other officers announce that the suspect was in custody, and also request medical attention for his gunshot wound, and that was when he first knew for certain that he had struck the suspect. Shortly after that Sgt. [redacted] came to the rear of the house, relieved [redacted] from his post and took him to Sgt [redacted] car, where he remained until CIB detectives arrived. PO [redacted] was armed with his standard issue M&P 40 handgun. His weapon was examined and found to have an unfired round in the chamber and 13 rounds in the magazine, consistent with his account of firing one shot. Additionally one spent .40 cal shell casing was found at the rear of the house.Subsequent to his statement on the day of the incident, all standard protocols for an officer-involved shooting were complied with, including collecting PO [redacted] weapon, issuing a new weapon to him, placing him on administrative duty, and conveying him for drug testing.PO [redacted] was also interviewed on the night of this incident by CIB detectives and gave the following account: He was working with PO [redacted] on Sq. [redacted] when they responded to the request for backup at the Battery DV complaint, with a suspect armed wlth a shotgun. When they arrived at the house, himself, PO [redacted] and PO [redacted] went to the rear of the house for containment. He stood near the southwest corner of the residence, while PO [redacted] went to the northwest corner, while Jelinek stood between them. A short time later he heard movement inside the house, and he looked up and saw a black male sticking his head and shoulder sticking out of the window, holding a shotgun that he was pointing down at PO [redacted] and he yelled for the suspect to drop the gun. PO [redacted] heard a single gunshot, and saw the suspect retreat back inside the house, but he could not tell at that instant which of the other officers fired the shot. PO [redacted] had his own gun drawn but he did not fire. Shortly after that he heard the other officers say that the suspect was in custody.Numerous other officers who were present at this incident were also interviewed and gave accounts substantially similar to those of POs [redacted] and [redacted]. Additionally, several citizens witnesses were interviewed and provided partial accounts that were consistent with the officers' statements, however no citizen was found to be a direct eyewitness to the shooting incident. The suspect Kenneth Whitaker was interviewed by detectives about his involvement. He had been treated for a minor gunshot wound to his left shoulder and released from the hospital. He gave several untruthful versions of events, but eventually admitted that he was present inside the house, that his brother had removed the box fan from the window that that he (Whitaker) had held the shotgun out the window for the purpose of placing it onto a ledge to hide it. He did admit that while he was holding the gun out the window it was pointed down towards the ground, however he did not admit to pointing it intentionally at the officers.The scene investigation revealed a sawed-off Mossberg 500 shotgun inside the upper bedroom where the officers had observed the suspect pointing the gun out of the window. As a result of his statements admitting possession this gun, Whitaker was charged by the DA with Possession of Short Barrelled Shotgun and ESBUODW- Pointing Firearm at Law Enforcement Officer. The actions of PO [redacted] were reviewed by DA John Chisolm. Based upon his preliminary review, he felt that the actions of PO [redacted] were within the guidelines of the law and that no criminal charges would be forthcoming.
