From 5:30 a.m. on 12/02/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 12/03/2017, MPD received 371 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.

**Central District went to Priority Calls Only beginning at 2:03 a.m. due to a gun call at a parking ramp and fight calls.  Priority Calls Only was extended to city-wide at 3:05 a.m. after multiple shots fired reports so officers could respond and be proactive and visible.  Priorities were lifted at 4:14 a.m. **

1) SOUTH: Strong Arm Robbery – 6:21 a.m.  MPD was dispatched to 2703 E Beltline Hwy (7-Eleven) for a strong armed robbery.  The suspect entered the 7-Eleven and presented a note demanding money. The caller did not see a weapon and no one was injured.  Investigation continuing.

2) NORTH: Check Person – 6:47 a.m.  MPD was called to Golf View Rd when a mother discovered her young son (WM) had left on foot with no coat and no boots (outside temp at the time 25- 30 degrees). MPD was familiar with this juvenile as he had done a similar act last week. Officers convene into the area and work together searching the area. Officers locate the child at approximately 7:30 a.m. and the child is fine.  Officers assist the mother with conveying the child to a local hospital for a psych evaluation.

3) CENTRAL: Disorderly Conduct – 7:33 a.m.  MPD was dispatched to N Butler St reference an intoxicated 23 year old WM jumping on the caller's bed and screaming.  MPD arrived and as they were detaining the subject his behavior continued to escalate and he became more violent in the back of the squad. Officers called MFD due to excited delirium concerns and the subject was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

4) EAST: Assist Police – 11:13 a.m.  Capitol PD engaged in a vehicle pursuit with speeds reaching approximately 85+ mph on E Washington Ave then Milwaukee St near Fair Oaks Ave.  The information provided to MPD was limited but given the time of day concerns, MPD requested that the pursuit be discontinued and that we would not be in a position to offer assistance.  This incident ended uneventfully and Capitol PD's investigation continues.

5) WEST: Drug Incident Overdose – 11:38 a.m.  Officers were dispatched to Cimarron Trl reference a drug overdose.  A 33 year old WM had overdosed in the bathroom of his mother's house.  This was apparently the second event within the past 48 hours.  The subject was transported to a local hospital and cited for possession of heroin. 

6) WEST: Check Person – 12:02 p.m.  Princeton Club on Watts Rd had called MPD reference a WM subject acting strangely in the locker room. Officers subsequently made contact, determined that he was having some mental health issues and subsequently escorted him out after doing an assessment and recommending a referral. Investigation continuing.
7) WEST: Drug Incident Overdose – 12:34 p.m.  Officers and EMS were dispatched to Farmington Way reference a possible overdose. Caller reported that the suspect (31 year old WM) was found unresponsive in the bathroom. Medics gave several doses of naloxone and the suspect was transported to the hospital. The suspect has a long history of drug addiction. Officers issued a citation for possession of heroin and paraphernalia and the suspect was left in the care of the hospital.

8) WEST: Drug Incident Overdose – 2:21 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the 6100 block of Mineral Point Rd, along with EMS, to a person that collapsed on the patio of a business. Officers were told that the woman (25 year old WF) appeared intoxicated and that there was an argument prior to the woman passing out. The suspect was believed to be under the influence of drugs and was intoxicated. She was transported to a local hospital and is being left in their care. She was given a citation for bail jumping.  Investigation continuing. 

9) WEST: Juvenile Disturbance/Arrest – 2:31 p.m.  MPD officers were dispatched to deal with the aftermath of a school recreation basketball game which began at La Follette High School earlier in the day.  The disturbance carried over to Memorial High School and officers were able to intervene and separate juveniles who were looking to fight.  A number of juveniles were cited for trespass.  Additionally, a stolen car was recovered and two individuals were cited for operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent (OMVWOC).  Altogether, five AAMs ranging from 15 to 16 years of age were involved.   

MPD received assistance through mutual aid from Shorewood Hills, who responded and assisted with the recovery of the stolen vehicle.  Upon searching the vehicle, a loaded handgun was recovered inside the vehicle.  Investigation continuing.

10) CENTRAL: Armed Robbery – 7:56 p.m. Residents state they were at home when two armed subjects entered through an unlocked door, pointing handguns at the victim residents.  One resident (23 year old WM) pushed the gun away and he was subsequently struck with the handgun, causing a significant laceration and other injuries to his face.  Both suspects fled, with a nearby citizen giving chase to one of the two suspects.  The suspect pointed the handgun at this citizen (21 year old WM), took his cell phone and continued to flee.  The injured victim was transported to a local hospital to attend to his injuries.  It does not appear at this point of the investigation that this was a random incident.   Investigation is continuing. 

11) EAST: Robbery Armed – 9:38 p.m.  A WM suspect entered the BP gas station at 1412 Pflaum Rd with a blue hoodie pulled over his face.  He implied that he had a gun, and attempted to pull the cash register off the counter, initially unsuccessfully.  The suspect continued his efforts and eventually fled the scene after taking money.  Investigation is continuing.

12) CENTRAL: Adult Arrested Person – 1:11 a.m.  MPD was dispatched to N Lake St reference a female subject's ID that was confiscated at a downtown bar, and the bar was refusing to return it.  She was adamant that it be returned and wanted a police response.  As officers were responding, she called back to say that she had used someone else's passport to get into the bar. The suspect was cited.     

13) CENTRAL: Fight Call – 1:35 a.m.  Bouncers at 701 E Washington Ave (The Brink) were having difficulties with multiple people fighting in the bar.  They were attempting to get people outside as the severity of the fight and number of involved parties grew to around 20 people.  A glass door to the bar was broken.  Multiple officers responded and were needed to bring things under control.  Door was apparently damaged on purpose, and this suspect (27 year old AAF) was cited accordingly.  Another party (27 year old AAF) was cited for disorderly conduct for instigating much of the disturbance.

14) CENTRAL: Weapons Offense-Person with a Gun – 1:51 a.m.  Roving domestic begins somewhere on State St and proceeds to a parking ramp where Good Samaritans try to intercede. During this disturbance the male half pulled a gun on one of those individuals, who was not a part of the original domestic and was only witnessing it.  Officers responded and took the suspect (22 year old AAM) into custody.  A handgun was recovered on scene.  The suspect appeared intoxicated and was not cooperative. He was transported to an area hospital for a medical clearance and will be taken to jail on charges of 2nd degree reckless endangering safety and intoxicated use of a firearm.

15) NORTH: Weapons Offense-Shots Fired – 1:53 a.m.  The caller reported hearing two loud bangs in the area of Hayes Rd.  Officers in the area also heard the reports, but could not determine exactly where they originated from.  Multiple callers place 2-3 rounds or explosions, with little consistency as to the location.  Officers checked the area and have been unable to determine the location or recover anything of evidentiary value at this time.  Investigation continuing.

16) CENTRAL: Battery – 2:51 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to N Henry St for the report of a battery.  The victim (24 year old WM) is at an area establishment drinking when he goes outside and swings at two individuals but misses.  Those individuals strike him multiple times and continue kicking and striking him while he is on the ground.  The victim may have lost consciousness but is uncertain, as is the witness.  The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.  The victim refused further cooperation, including refusing photos and a medical release.  At this time there is no reliable suspect description either.

17) WEST: Weapons Offense-Shots Fired – 3:00 a.m.  Multiple callers report hearing gunshots in the area of 6000 Birch Hill Dr.  Responding officers see a vehicle fleeing the area and other vehicles still on scene parked in multiple directions.  Many vehicles flee the area and the people remaining are detained and interviewed.  Further investigation showed that the group present was remembering an accident victim in the area.  No damage or injuries or other signs of shots being fired were located.  One individual was determined to have a warrant, and was placed under arrest and conveyed to jail without incident.

18) NORTH: Weapons Offense-Shots Fired – 3:04 a.m.  Multiple callers reported hearing rounds fired somewhere near the Vera Ct/Troy Drive area.  Multiple officers responded and callers were spoken to, but MPD was not able to ascertain the exact location or source of the noise.  No injuries have been reported and no damage was located.  Investigation continuing.

19) EAST: Weapons Offense-Person with a Gun – 3:40 a.m.  Caller reports that he was struck in the head with a gun, with an approximate five minute time lapse.  The victim (31 year old WM) drove himself to an area hospital, stating that the suspect was still at the residence, located on Acewood Blvd.  Further investigation reveals that the victim and a friend went to the residence for an after bar party.  Someone tells the suspect that they are not getting along with the victim, at which point the suspect approached the victim and struck him.  Officers are in contact with the victim and attempts to contact the suspect at this point have been unsuccessful.  Investigation continuing.
