Violent Protests Erupt In Milwaukee After Police Kill Armed Suspect

Violent protests erupted in Milwaukee after more than 100 people gathered in a standoff with police following a shooting in which a cop shot and killed a man after a traffic stop and foot chase earlier in the day.

Police said the 23-year-old man was armed with a handgun, but Assistant Chief Bill Jessup told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that it wasn't immediately clear whether the man had pointed a gun or fired at the officer.

They described the man as a suspect, but didn't say what led to the traffic stop.

A total of four buildings were set on fire, including the gas station, during the protest.
