Officer Who Killed Man Also Shot Another March 4

Officer Pablo Torres shot, killed man on same day he returned to work after being placed on leave for previous shooting

The Kenosha Police Department says an officer who shot and killed an armed man had just returned to duty after shooting another man about two weeks ago.

Authorities have identified the 26-year-old fatally shot on Saturday as Aaron Siler, of Kenosha. Police said he had armed himself with a weapon before he was shot by Officer Pablo Torres. Siler was wanted on a felony warrant and led police on a vehicle chase and a foot pursuit before he was shot.

Police said Officer Torres shot and wounded a man who was armed with two knives on March 4. He was placed on leave and returned to work Saturday. The man survived.

Siler's friend Rocky Garcia told WGTD radio that Siler knew he was wanted by police and boasted to friends that he wouldn't surrender quietly.
