By Jermont Terry

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Video captured by a home surveillance camera showed a Milwaukee Police officer caught in the middle of a gun battle. In the video you can see the officer slip on some ice as he tries to seek shelter. At one point the officer hid behind a tree. Police say a 24 year-old man was shooting back at the officer the entire time.

In the video you can see a man walking down the alley before the shots are fired. Police say this man was running from officers after they tried to pull him over blocks away.

Police say the man shot first at officers. Several bullets hit a police squad car. Two officers then returned fire. Witnesses describe this as a true gun battle with more than two rounds going off. Amazingly the gunman was the only one injured. This is the third officer involved shooting in less than three weeks in the city.
