According to TMJ4:
“MILWAUKEE – A suspected shoplifter drowned in the Milwaukee River north of downtown Monday night.
A security guard, a store employee and an off-duty police detective chased him from the Blockbuster store on East Ogden Avenue.
The 34-year-old Milwaukee man ran west until he got to the river at the Pleasant Street Bridge. Police said he jumped from the bridge to evade apprehension, but did not resurface.
Witness Mary Fernandez said, “The guy gave chase and they were fighting more or less and that’s when the guy jumped into the river.”
The fire department’s dive rescue team pulled the man out of the river, but he died at the scene.
Police said the man was also wanted for a felony parole violation. He was identified as Jermaine Herron of Milwaukee.”
