FBI Milwaukee officials told the Wisconsin Law Journal on Thursday, “I can confirm that the FBI was assisting the Milwaukee Police Department with an incident in downtown Milwaukee on Tuesday afternoon. The FBI routinely offers assistance to our law enforcement partners, to provide additional manpower and specialized resources, if they become necessary. For details about the investigation, please contact MPD, which is the lead investigative agency. The FBI values strong collaboration with local and state law enforcement partners across Wisconsin.”
