By PoliceOne Staff MILWAUKEE — A man has been charged with two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide after opening fire on police during a domestic dispute on Saturday. According to Journal Sentinel, 34-year-old Javon Lewis opened fire on two officers during a foot pursuit. The two officers were responding to a home after being called about a domestic dispute between Lewis and his girlfriend. Lewis told a relative who called police that he was going to shoot his girlfriend and that the police were going to have to shoot him, Journal Sentinel reports. As police approached, Lewis began to walk away from the scene. An officer ordered him to stop, but Lewis began to run. While the officers were chasing him, Lewis turned around and fired four times at the LEOs. One bullet hit an officer’s holster at his waste and cracked it. An officer fired nine rounds at Lewis while the other officer dived to the ground to avoid Lewis’s bullets. During the exchange of gunfire, Lewis was shot in the shoulder, causing him to fall to the ground and allowing police to arrest him. Lewis has also been charged with possessing a firearm as a convicted felon along with misdemeanor battery and strangulation and suffocation.
