Milwaukee, WI - On Saturday, Alfredo Daniel Montanez, 32, appeared in court to face multiple felony charges involving a shooting incident with police officers in September. Montanez was taken into custody at a Franklin motel on Tuesday in connection with shooting at Milwaukee police officers on September 26 after a traffic stop has been charged with four felony counts in the case, according to court records. The criminal complaint states that, Montanez fired a weapon multiple times at police and then fled the scene after crashing his vehicle near the 900 block of W. Cleveland Ave. Police recovered a .40 caliber semiautomatic handgun from the SUV and personal documents identifying Montanez including a court notice to appear for another case from the vehicle.
Police initially stopped Montanez at the 1300 block of W. Cleveland for several traffic violations and while being questioned by a police officer at the scene for an odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the SUV, Montanez decided to flee from the scene shortly after the officer also noticed a gun holster near the drive shift of the vehicle and warned another officer that Montanez had a weapon. 
Montanez was charged with 1st-degree recklessly endangering safety (if convicted, he is facing 12 years in prison and up to $25K in fines), possession of a weapon by a felon (facing 10 years in prison and $25K in fines), bail jumping (facing 6 years in prison and $10K in fines) and fleeing and eluding an officer (facing 3 and 6 months in prison and $10K in fines). A cash bond of $75K was set on Saturday  for Montanez.
According to court records, Montanez was also wanted for failure to appear in court for several felony charges filed on December 2016, for bail jumping (if convicted, he is facing 6 years in prison and $10K in fines) and possession of an electric weapon (facing 6 years in prison and $10K in fines). Montanez forfeited $4K in cash bond. 
He was also wanted for failure to appear in court for a felony charge filed on August 2016 for possession of cocaine (if convicted, Montanez is facing 3 and 6 months in prison and $10K in fines) and forfeited $500 in cash bond, according to court records.
