Teenage car-jacking suspect fatally shot by Milwaukee cops identified

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 17-year-old boy who allegedly tried car-jacking a vehicle, and was later killed by police in downtown Milwaukee, was identified today as Shawn Rieves. 

Police said Rieves tried but failed to get into a vehicle stopped at an intersection Monday morning.  

The driver sped away, and Rieves fired one shot with his semi-automatic handgun and missed. The driver then gave officers a description of the suspect, and three officers caught up him inside the nearby Milwaukee County Transit Center. 

Officials said Rieves ignored orders to drop his gun -- and when he moved in a threatening manner, the officers shot him.  

Investigators were hoping to get video from the transit center -- but the cameras were not running at the time. Officials said the transit building is rarely used.
