MILWAUKEE, Wisc. — London Stewart and his girlfriend were asleep early Wednesday when Milwaukee police tossed in a flash-bang grenade, yelled "Police!" and began smashing a sledge hammer into the front door of the N. 12th St. house, according to a criminal complaint issued Saturday.

Stewart grabbed the loaded 9mm Hi-Point handgun on the nightstand, flipped off the safety and ran out of the bedroom, firing at least one round, hitting Officer James Jekanoski in the arm, the complaint says.
