MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - A suburban Milwaukee police officer was shot on the west side of the city on Friday by a burglary suspect, who fled on foot and is still at large, police said.
The 52-year-old Wauwatosa police detective and two other officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect in a parking lot, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said.
The detective, who was been with the Wauwatosa department for 25 years, was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, Flynn said.
Several area law-enforcement agencies are searching for the suspect, who is considered armed and extremely dangerous, he told a news conference.
