An off-duty Milwaukee police officer has his body armor to thank for possibly saving his life after he was shot point-blank in the chest during a carjacking on the city's northwest side early Monday.
The officer, who was on his way home, was shot once by a 17-year-old suspect with a semiautomatic handgun, police said.
