Gunfight between the suspect and the cop:

A scuffle erupted when one cop caught up with the suspect. Both men fired their firearms. Officer Jerving was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital immediately.

The injured cop, 37-year-old Peter Jerving, passed away at a hospital. According to the chief, Jerving has four years of service with the Milwaukee Police Department.

The department presented Jerving, who was assigned to Police District 4, with a lifesaving award in November.

Last summer, he and another cop witnessed a car crash and discovered the driver suffering from a gunshot wound.

The two policemen treated the injured driver while Jerving put out flames in the victim’s car using a fire extinguisher. Norman called the situation “extremely dangerous.”

He had lived in Milwaukee his entire life and, according to Norman, had aspired to be a police officer since he was 13 years old.
