(Newser) – The Milwaukee County sheriff says a suspect has been shot and wounded inside Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. No hospital staff, patients, or others were hurt. The incident began when officers went to the hospital in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa about noon after learning that a man wanted for being a felon in possession of a firearm was visiting the neonatal unit, said Sheriff David Clarke. Officers approached the man, who was holding a baby. Clarke says the man put the baby down and ran, then produced a gun and turned around several times. The sheriff would not say whether the man fired any shots. Officers shot and wounded the man, who was being treated.
