Statement by Earnell Lucas on the death of Milwaukee Police Office Charles Irvine
To our great sorrow, Milwaukee Police Officer Charles Irvine gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving our community. Public service is a noble endeavor, and the tragic loss of Officer Irvine reminds us of the dangers to which our law enforcement officers are exposed each day.
As we enter this weekend, we mourn Officer Irvine, a young man taken far too soon from the community he so bravely served. My family and I send our deepest condolences to Officer Irvine's family, friends, and MPD colleagues at this most difficult time, and we wish Officer Matthew Schulze a full recovery and thank him for his service to our community.
