A Wisconsin children’s hospital was on lockdown Thursday after an armed new dad holding his baby in the neo-natal ward was confronted by police serving an arrest warrant, officials said.
The man, who was not immediately identified, put his infant down and bolted when police showed him the warrant. They opened fire after seeing he had a weapon, authorities said.
He suffered a wrist wound and was in custody. No one else was injured in the incident.
“This is not a situation where a guy came in to shoot somebody,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told reporters on the scene.
