MILWAUKEE - Andrew Wilkiewicz, the off-duty Milwaukee police detective shot in the Third Ward last month, was rewarded for his actions Tuesday, Feb. 8.
The Calderone Club presented a $10,000 check to the detective, with the help of San Giorgio Pizzeria Napoletana; both restaurants raised the money as a "thank you" to the detective.
Wilkiewicz suffered four gunshot wounds – shot while trying to intervene in a robbery at Shake Shack on Jan. 13. He was discharged from the hospital five days later.
The $10,000 check comes after Wilkiewicz was honored by the acting mayor's office, which proclaimed Feb. 4, 2022 as "Andy Wilkiewicz Day" in Milwaukee.
"This man's a hero," said Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson said at the time.
