In Southern Milwaukee County, a seemingly routine traffic stop leads Oak Creek police to chase a vehicle into neighboring Racine County, followed by a crash into a building, shots fired, and the driver ending up dead.
Oak Creek police say a resident called in to report a man going door to door selling auto parts, who seemed suspicious. Officers spotted a man’s car a shot time later. The driver took off, leading officers on a chase which ended with his car through the front of a building in Caledonia. The man was shot by an officer whose squad car had ended up in a ditch at the scene. The suspect was declared dead at Wheaton Franciscan Hospital in Racine.
