U.S. Marshals search for wanted suspect


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – U.S. Marshals are searching for a wanted Milwaukee man who escaped from a downtown Milwaukee apartment building late Tuesday night.

Twenty-eight-year-old Johnny Lopez is a known gang member who was out on bail from a drug conspiracy charge.  He is also accused of committing an armed robbery.

Our affiliate in Milwaukee, WISN-TV, says the search began on the seventh floor of Juneau Village Towers, but Lopez escaped from the balcony.

As of 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a U.S. Marshal's spokesman said they were no longer looking inside the building.

Authorities say he is not considered to be armed and dangerous at this time.
