MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Two Milwaukee police officers are shot at in an alley. When they fired back shots, one of the suspects was hurt. The officers were not.

Milwaukee Police say the officers were on foot patrol Monday night when they approached a suspicious vehicle in an alley. A suspect inside fired shots. The officers returned fire and the vehicle sped off, crashing a few blocks away. All three suspects in the vehicle were arrested.

A 17-year-old suspect had been shot in the wrist. The other suspects are each 18.

Schwartz says all three have criminal records, including arrests for armed robbery and sexual assault.

Both officers have been placed on administrative duty according to department policy.
