MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Jamie Alexander on Friday, Jan. 28 to 18 months probation in connection with an incident in November 2018.
According to court documents, police say they tried to approach Alexander near 35th and Clarke on Nov. 12, 2018. But officials say he ran. Officers allegedly asked Alexander to stop and drop his gun. While running, police say Alexander pulled the gun out of his pocket, which prompted an officer to fire, striking Alexander.
