The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.

From 6:00 a.m. on 07/05/2019 through 6:00 a.m. on 07/06/2019, MPD received 520 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.  For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown.  MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

To further break down the 520 calls for service for the past 24 hours, this is how the calls came in per district: Central (110), East (104), Midtown (81), North (78), South (45), West (62), and Other (40).  Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City.  For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other."

**Priority calls only from 12:10am to 3:30am due to the north side shooting, east side overdose and central calls for service and arrest.

1) CENTRAL: Domestic Disturbance – 4:58 a.m.  Officers responded to the 500 block of W. Wilson Street for a domestic disturbance between two subjects (29-year-old WF victim and 32-year-old AAM suspect).  The subjects have been in an on-again/off-again relationship.  The suspect climbed the balcony to the victim's residence, kicked in her door (causing damage) and entered without permission.  The suspect fled but was apprehended by officers.  The suspect was arrested and conveyed to jail on charges of criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct (domestic-related charges).  *This was a late call that did not make the previous 24-hour cycle call notes due to officers being involved at the scene and reports from the field were not yet typed. 
2) MIDTOWN: Recovered/Stolen Auto – 8:00 a.m.  An officer located an unoccupied stolen vehicle on N. Segoe Rd.  The vehicle was towed to MPD's vehicle impound facility.  Investigation continuing. 

3) WEST: Missing/Runaway Juvenile – 9:50 a.m.  While officers were conducting follow-up on a burglary complaint, the mother of one of the involved subjects/suspects (14-year-old AAF) advised that the juvenile had not returned home.  The juvenile was therefore listed in the appropriate databases as missing/runaway.  There are charges pending for the suspect once she is located.  Investigation continuing.          

4) MIDTOWN: Found Property – 9:50 a.m.  Officers responded to S. Mills St/N. Wingra Dr for found property (cell phone, books, etc.).  The owner of said items was discovered to be at a local hospital.  Items were reunited with their owner.  No further action deemed necessary by officers.   

5) EAST: OMVWI – 12:49 pm.  Officers responded to the intersection of N Stoughton Rd and E Washington Ave for a crash where a driver/suspect (33-year-old HM) rear-ended a vehicle and attempted to leave the scene.  The driver of the victim vehicle confronted the suspect and a physical altercation ensued.  Two children, ages 4 and 5, were passengers in the suspect vehicle.  Drug paraphernalia was also located in the suspect vehicle.  The suspect was arrested for 2nd offense OWI.  CPS was notified.  Investigation continuing.

6) SOUTH: Recovered Stolen Vehicle – 1:27 pm.  A vehicle involved in a hit and run crash was discovered to be stolen from a previous incident.  The vehicle was located near Churchill Dr and Post Rd.  The occupants fled on foot.  A K9 track was conducted but the suspects were not found.  Investigation continuing.

7) SOUTH: OMVWI – 7:05 pm.  Officers responded to the underpass at Todd Dr and the beltline for a vehicle that had crashed into a pole.  MFD paramedics found the driver/suspect (31-year-old FW) unresponsive and administered naloxone.  A 3-year-old child was a passenger in the vehicle and was not injured.  The suspect was conveyed to a local hospital for a medical clearance before being transported to jail on charges of 2nd offense OWI with passenger under 16, possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, and multiple traffic citations.  CPS was notified and the child was placed with a family member.  Investigation continuing.

8) EAST: Disturbance – 8:52 pm.  Officers were dispatched to the 5000 block of Milwaukee St for a report of shots fired.  Upon arrival officers discovered a physical altercation had broken out between two of the suspects (18-year-old WM and 51-year-old AAM) over ongoing issues while a third suspect (19-year-old AAM, also involved in the ongoing dispute) was driving his vehicle at a high rate of speed up and down Milwaukee St, nearly striking pedestrians and other vehicles.  Officers determined that no shots were fired.  The 19-year-old suspect was taken to jail on a charge of recklessly endangering safety.  The 18-year-old suspect was taken to jail on a charge of disorderly conduct.  The 51-year-old suspect was cited for disorderly conduct and released.  Investigation continuing.

9) NORTH: Weapons Offense Shots Fired – 11:58 pm.  Officers responded to the area of Packers Ave and Warbler Ln for a report of a person shot.  The victim (19-year-old AAM) was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Investigation continuing.  Incident report completed on MPD website.

10) EAST: Drug Overdose – 12:49 am.  Officers responded to a residence on Clyde Gallagher Ave for a suspect (26-year-old WM) who was unresponsive with a pulse and shallow breathing.  An MPD officer administered naloxone before MFD paramedics arrived and administered a second dose.  The suspect was transported to the hospital where he admitted to using heroin.  The suspect was cited for possession of heroin and referred to the MARI program.  Investigation continuing.
