Milwaukee Police Officer Herbert Davis was responding to a call about a sick/injured man last Thursday, when he arrived to see him slumped over in the vehicle.
When Davis attempted to provide assistance, the man jumped up and fired at Officer Davis, fled on foot, and then stole his police cruiser. He crashed several blocks down the street and was apprehended.
The suspect, Jetrin Rodthong, has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and use of a dangerous weapon. A cash bond has been set at $1 million.
Davis was treated at the hospital for three gunshot wounds and released. He left the hospital dressed in is Bengals gear and was able to celebrate the AFC Championship win at home.
WATCH: MPD Herbert Davis was shot by a suspect Thursday. He is a big #Cincinnati@Bengals fan & wore his gear when he was released from the hospital Friday. This is his reaction when he saw the final seconds of the game Sunday & learned they were going to the Super Bowl! pic.twitter.com/svRELwNjXJ
