Wauwatosa, WI -

(FOX 11 / AP) Milwaukee police shot an armed suspect at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin while trying to serve a felony warrant around 11: 59 a.m. Friday.

According to Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Milwaukee police officers tried to serve a felony warrant on a suspect who was on the hospital's seventh floor in the neo-natal unit. The warrant was reportedly for felony possession of a firearm.

Clarke said the suspect was holding a baby when officers found the suspect, according to the station. The suspect was notified he was being arrested. The suspect put down the baby, and gave the impression he'd be cooperative, reports the station.

The suspect then reportedly ran away from the officers, firing shots at them as he ran. Milwaukee police officers shot and wounded the man inside the hospital.

The suspect is being treated at Froedtert Hospital, according to the station.

The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is still under lockdown. The hospital released a statement saying the situation "has been contained" but that the building would remain on lockdown "until law enforcement issues a complete all-clear."
