The man shot by a Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office deputy Sunday at the lakefront is on life support, and what is promised to be a long investigation into the shooting is just beginning, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said Monday. A man and a woman were wounded when the deputy, who was on foot, fired several times into the Audi SUV as it fled from a sheriff's vehicle on N. Lincoln Memorial Drive on a bustling, steamy early summer night. The chase began following a traffic infraction, the sheriff said. Clarke identified the shooting victims as Terry Williams, 19, and Paula McEwen, 23. McEwen suffered a wound to her shoulder and is expected to survive. A third person, a man, was in the back seat, according to video on Facebook. Clarke did not mention that man during a brief news conference. The sheriff said a loaded 9mm handgun was found in the vehicle. He did not indicate where the weapon was found or whether it was brandished by Williams or anyone else in the vehicle during the pursuit. Clarke identified the deputy who fired into the vehicle as Michael Truax, 32, hired in August. He was put on administrative leave, standard in such cases.
