WAUWATOSA - A 30-year-old police officer was shot-to-death on Christmas Eve in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa.
At a mid-day news conference, she was identified as Jennifer Sebena – who joined the ‘Tosa police force almost two years ago, after graduating from the police academy at Milwaukee Area Technical College. Police Lieutenant Jerry Witkowski confirmed that a homicide investigation is underway – there are no suspects – and the state Justice Department is heading up the probe.
Police knew something was wrong about three this morning – when a dispatcher tried to reach Sebena on her police radio for a call, and she didn’t answer. Officers went looking for her – and they found her body around five a-m near the downtown Wauwatosa fire station. Witkowski said Sebena appeared to be wearing a safety vest – but she was still shot multiple times. He said Sebena was married, and he did not know if she had any children
