A suspect shot a Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy multiple times after fleeing an overnight traffic stop on foot before apparently shooting himself, police said Wednesday.

A deputy made the stop at 2:08 a.m. Central around West Adler Street and South 68th Street and called for backup, according to police. When more officers arrived, the driver and passenger attempted to flee on foot. After catching the driver, the officers saw the other suspect climbing out of a garbage bin. One of the backup deputies later approached the suspect, at which point the suspect drew his weapon and inflicted multiple gunshot wounds onto the deputy, the press release stated.

“As of about 3:30 a.m., the deputy was conscious, breathing & receiving treatment. The suspect vehicle driver is in custody,” the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department said in a tweet. “The shooter/passenger, considered armed/dangerous, is at large. West Allis & Milwaukee police departments are assisting in the search.”

The deputy’s injuries, sustained to both of his arms and torso, “do not appear to be life threatening,” Milwaukee police said in the press release.
