WAUWATOSA (WKOW) -- Police in Wauwatosa say they now consider the death of an on-duty police officer to be a homicide.
Lt. Gerald Witkowski says the deceased officer is 30-year-old Jennifer Lynn Sebena.
Witkowski says officers were trying to reach Sebena for a call about 3 a.m. Monday. Officers started looking for her and found her dead with several gunshot wounds about 5 a.m.
Officers have no suspects.
Witkowski says Sebena enrolled in the police academy in January 2011 and began working solo in July. He says she was married and described her as a great person and officer.
Police are urging witnesses to come forward.
The state Justice Department's criminal investigation unit is helping in the investigation.
WAUWATOSA (WKOW) -- An on-duty Wauwatosa police officer was found dead early Monday morning.
Wauwatosa police say dispatchers tried to get the officer to respond to a call and couldn't. Later, around 5:00 a.m., the officer was found dead in the area near Milwaukee and Wauwatosa Avenues. Investigators say the officer did not die of natural causes.
Wauwatosa police still have a perimeter set up in that area of the city, but say the safety risk to the public is low because they extensively searched that area. The department is getting help from several police agencies, the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation and the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office.
Police have not released any information about who the officer was yet.
