Vigil held for fallen Milwaukee officer

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) — Milwaukee lost two public servants this week, a police officer and a Public Works Department employee.

People who knew officer Matthew Rittner honored him Friday.

They held a vigil at a school in Milwaukee.

The police chief said this gathering is important, since it shows police, the city and community members are part of a giant family.

Officer Rittner was killed Wednesday morning while serving a warrant.
