Violence and protests erupted in Milwaukee overnight after a man was fatally shot by police during a foot chase.I'm from Wisconsin and I love Milwaukee; unfortunately, I'm not surprised by any of this. Parts of the city are simply not safe and haven't been for a long time. This one could get ugly.
Police said the victim, 23, was armed with a handgun and shot dead by an officer after fleeing a traffic stop on Milwaukee's north side Saturday afternoon.
Hours later angry crowds took to the streets, smashing a police car and setting fire to another. One officer was injured by a flying brick; a gas station and auto-parts store were set alight. Police said gunshots were heard.
