Milwaukee, Wisconsin – On Saturday, police arrested Najee M. Harmon, 20, after a tip led authorities to a Northside address where he was hiding. On Friday, police identified Harmon as the suspect who was wanted for getting into a shoot out with two plain clothes Wauwatosa police detectives and a uniform officer shortly after a burglary call. The officer and detectives were able to locate a vehicle sought in the burglary and attempted to take Harmon into custody. Harmon and police got into a shoot out in the 7100 block of N. 60th Street around 9:10 a.m. and a 52-year-old Wauwatosa detective was injured, but suffered a non-life threatening injury. At least one officer returned fire, according to Milwaukee police. Police recovered about 11 spent cartridges at the crime scene.
Harmon was wanted for a June 16 armed robbery.
The ATF had offered $5K for information leading to Harmon’s arrest and conviction.
