Milwaukee, Wisconsin

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel of April 11, 2004:

Intruder killed, woman wounded in break-in

A Milwaukee man shot and killed an armed man - wounding his own girlfriend in the process - after three men broke into an apartment early Sunday, police said.

The man, who lives in the 4000 block of N. 46th St., and the girlfriend were in the apartment just after 1:30 a.m. when three armed men entered in a robbery attempt, police Capt. Susan Edman said.

Edman provided this account:

The resident left through a window after shooting one would-be robber, a 25-year-old Milwaukee man. The other two intruders fled.

The girlfriend remained in the apartment after the shooting. Authorities later discovered she had a gunshot wound to her thigh. Her condition was unavailable.

A short time later, police arrested two suspects after a police chase that ended in a vehicle crash in the 4200 block of N. 24th Place.

The man who shot the intruder has been interviewed by police, Edman said, and the case will be turned over to the district attorney's office for review.
