MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 19-year-old man who was shot by a sheriff’s deputy on Milwaukee’s lakefront has died.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office says Terry Williams died Tuesday at Froedtert Hospital. He had been on life support since he was shot in the head Sunday after he tried to flee from authorities and then drove onto a curb. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has said a loaded handgun was found in the vehicle.

Citizen video shows the SUV driving up a curb with a sheriff’s vehicle in pursuit when a deputy appears on foot with a gun drawn. Multiple shots can be heard on the video.

The deputy who fired his weapon was identified as Michael Truax, who was hired in August. He was put on standard administrative leave.
