Medical Examiner confirms Sylville Smith had gunshot wounds to chest, arm
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the autopsy of Sylville Smith revealed a single gunshot wound to the chest — and a single gunshot wound to the right arm.
Officials say the autopsy report and investigative reports will not be released — because this case is still under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.
The officer-involved fatal shooting of Smith near 44th and Auer on Saturday afternoon, August 13th touched off several nights of unrest in the Sherman Park neighborhood. Businesses were looted and burned, Milwaukee police made arrests — and now, there is a concerted effort to bring back the peace to the neighborhood.
