Wauwatosa WI Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena Found Shot While on Patrol

FALLEN POLICE OFFICER:  Wauwatosa WI Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena, 30, was found shot to death on Christmas Even, hours after a police dispatcher tried unsuccessfully to reach her. Officer Sebena’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

A dispatcher tried to reach Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena, 30, for a call about 3 a.m. Monday, but she didn’t respond, Wauwatosa Lt. Gerald Witkowski said. Officers began looking for her and found her dead with several gunshot wounds about 5 a.m., he said. He didn’t know if she was found inside or outside her squad car or whether she tried to defend herself. Investigators have no suspects, and Witkowski urged witnesses to come forward.

Sebena graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College’s police academy, he said. She started solo work with the police department in Wauwatosa, a city of about 46,000 people just west of Milwaukee, in July and ended her probationary period in November. Witkowski said he’s the field training coordinator and worked with her when she went through the department’s program and even went to her graduation. Source:  Miami Herald
