“This is a difficult time, as we’ve had before in the last year, to lose a police officer,” said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. “I want the residents of this city to know and to appreciate the work that’s done by our police officers.”

“This is a sad day for this city, a sad day for the state,” said Milwaukee Alderman Cavalier Johnson.

Johnson said this incident is particularly difficult for him to comprehend because he lives not far from the accident scene — and travels through that intersection with his wife and three small children on a daily basis.

“Michalski, Rittner, Irvine, and now Officer Her. It’s sad. It’s tragic, and it’s also unnecessary,” Johnson said. “It’s unfair, it’s not right.”

The investigation into the fatal crash is being handled by the Wisconsin State Patrol.
