Milwaukee cop uses deadly force for second time in a week

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - For the second time in a week a Milwaukee police officer has had to use deadly force.

The Saturday night incident is being investigated.

Officers were called to a house where a man with two knives was allegedly threatening to kill a relative. The caller said the 46-year-old man had a history of using violence against members of his family.

When police arrived on the scene, the man advanced on them, refusing to drop his weapons.

One officer shot and killed him.

Just last Wednesday, Milwaukee police killed a 45-year-old man who also refused to drop his weapon.
