Double Police Shooting for Joliet Police Department - Joliet PD shoot 2 men in less than 24 hours

35-year-old Lockport man was transported this morning to a Joliet-area hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds received when he allegedly aimed his vehicle at Joliet police.

The early morning shooting came less than 24 hours after Joliet Police shot a 29-year-old Crest Hill man who allegedly pointed a gun at them.

The two men, who are former Joliet residents, were being kept under guard this morning at a Joliet-area hospital, according to prepared statements released today by Joliet Police. No police were injured and the wounds were termed "non-life-threatening." No police were injured.

In the first incident, police responded to a 7:27 a.m. domestic-disturbance call Sunday on the 500 block of Second Avenue in which the 29-year-old Crest Hill man allegedly had choked one victim and threatened to shoot other persons present in the home.

The man allegedly displayed a semi-automatic pistol to an officer who encountered him at the rear of the residence. Police said the man re-entered the home holding the gun and didn't obey commands from three officers to put the weapon down.

An officer reportedly shot the suspect in the abdomen after he allegedly pointed the weapon at an officer.

He was transported to a Joliet-area hospital, where he underwent surgery and remained under guard.

Police reportedly recovered the man's gun, as well as crack cocaine "packaged for the intent of delivery."

Way to go, Joliet. Try to keep the average up. Let's go for fatalities, though. Lower medical expenses...

Why do we even take this trash to a hospital to be saved so they can do the same thing again. Let them croak on the scene.

Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Sergio Aleman died of injuries he suffered Tuesday in a two-vehicle crash in the southbound lanes of I-43 near Juneau Ave., authorities said.

Sheriff's Inspector Edward Bailey said Aleman was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, where he was pronounced dead. The crash resulted in no other serious injuries, said Fran McLaughlin, speaking for the department.

"On behalf of the 1,200 men and women of the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, our thoughts and prayers are with Deputy Sheriff Aleman's family," Bailey said at a news conference.

Aleman was in a sheriff's pickup truck that provides service to disabled motorists, among other things.

The crash occurred at 12:17 p.m. and closed the southbound lanes of I-43 and one northbound lane of the interstate. The closure was expected to continue through rush hour into the evening as the Wisconsin State Patrol investigated the crash.

Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. was attending homeland security training Tuesday in California. He is cutting that trip short and returning to Milwaukee, Bailey said.

Clarke will be speaking with the deputy's wife, and he will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. Wednesday to provide an update on the details of the crash and Aleman's career.

The deputy's death is the first in the line of duty since deputies Ralph Zylka, 48, and Sung Hui Bang, 31, were killed when the Sheriff's Department helicopter crashed Aug. 17, 2000, in a field in Dodge County.

The two were returning from the Wisconsin Dells area, where they had been assisting in the search for a man wanted in the beating death of his girlfriend, a Chicago police officer. That suspect was apprehended in Juneau County after a 17-hour search.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released a statement Tuesday that said:

"My deepest condolences go out to Deputy Sergio Aleman's family and friends. Deputy Aleman leaves behind a legacy of service including an award earlier this year for his role in apprehending an armed robber. Milwaukee County is committed to standing with Deputy Aleman's family and the Sheriff's Office during their time of grief."

Abele said flags at the Milwaukee County Courthouse and Vel R. Phillips Juvenile Justice Center will be flown at half-staff for 30 days to honor Aleman.

Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic released a statement that said:

"On behalf of the entire County Board of Supervisors, we express our deepest condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sergio Aleman's family during this extremely difficult time.

"The heroic actions of our law enforcement personnel help make Milwaukee County a safe place to live and work. Deputy Aleman provided more than 18 years of dedicated service to the residents of Milwaukee County. His life was tragically cut short, and he will be sorely missed."
