MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 27-year-old Milwaukee man is charged with attempted homicide after authorities say he shot at police investigating an apparent drug deal.

Jerimy Whitelaw also is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1xhi0tk ) reports Whitelaw was shot twice in the abdomen during an exchange of gunfire with one of the officers early Thursday.

Two officers were on patrol when they saw two people conducting an apparent drug deal. One person ran away when the officers stopped. Authorities say the other, identified as Whitelaw, shot at one of the officers as he got out of his squad car.

The officer chased Whitelaw into a yard where Whitelaw allegedly fired again. The officer returned fire.

Authorities say Whitelaw tossed the gun and continued to run, but fell and was arrested.
