Man accused of wounding Milwaukee officer faces 8 charges

MILWAUKEE (AP) – A man accused of shooting and wounding a Milwaukee police officer is facing eight felony charges.

A criminal complaint released Sunday charges 22-year-old Jetrin Rodthong with attempted first degree intentional homicide and use of a dangerous weapon in Thursday’s shooting.

The officer, 26-year-old Herbert Davis III, was released from a local hospital Friday.

It was the second shooting of a law enforcement officer in two days in Milwaukee and the third in two weeks.

Rodthong is also charged with armed carjacking, three counts of bail jumping, recklessly endangering safety, hit-and-run, and possession of methamphetamine.

A court commissioner on Sunday said Rodthong would be released to electronic home monitoring with other conditions. A preliminary hearing was set for Feb. 9.
