Joliet Shootings

Joliet PD getting busy lately:
  • A 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.

That's always good to hear - no police injured.

To our suburban brothers, good luck and well done.

Non-life-threatening injuries = the police didn't have .45 caliber service weapons.

"Good shootin', Tex!"

If you have a .357 Magnum, you don't need a .45.

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."

The .357 is a fine round,but unless things have changed since I retired, CPD still requires you to chamber a .38 cal. round if your revolver is your service weapon. The .45 ACP is a great knock down round, I worked in the ghetto almost my entire career,and responded to numerous people shot,anyone hit with a .45 was laying on the ground or dead. While I personally know of an offender who took 15 rounds of 9mm and lived for an hour and a half before he bled out at the ER.
