Milwaukee standoff near 85th and Brown Deer, wanted man arrested

A Milwaukee standoff ended with the arrest of a wanted man on Sunday evening, Jan. 15 near 85th and Brown Deer.

Police responded around 3 p.m., and officers "obtained information that the suspect was inside," MPD said. He refused to make contact with police and a "tactical setup was established."

Milwaukee police identified the man arrested as Martell Haire, 35, wanted for child sex assault. An arrest warrant was issued in late December.
