The Milwaukee County sheriff's deputy being shot after a foot pursuit early Wednesday, Jan. 26 led to an urgent and large police presence in a Milwaukee neighborhood. FOX6 News spoke with a West Allis man who witnessed the aftermath of the violent shooting.

"I just happened to be going that way and I pulled over on the bridge and I saw a huge police presence so I figured I’d record and check it out," said Joe Juarez.

Juarez captured the law enforcement response Wednesday morning – after a deputy was shot in the line of duty.


"It was pretty chaotic. A lot of officers just running back and forth to their vehicles. Just a lot of sirens, just a huge big presence. It looks like they were diligent," Juarez said.
