MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - An armed robbery suspect killed by a police officer in Milwaukee was identified Friday as 19-year-old Cornelius Turner.
Officials said he had just robbed two beer delivery men when a Milwaukee officer chased him down and got into a scuffle. As Turner was reaching for his semi-automatic weapon, officials said the patrolman pulled his service weapon and shot the suspect.
Police Chief Ed Flynn said the shooting couldn't be helped, but Milwaukee police officials are investigating the officer's conduct anyway.
The nine-year veteran of the city's police force is on administrative duty for now.
