In April of 2022, the Milwaukee Police Department released two edited videos of the in-custody death of Keishon Thomas, as well as a shooting in the lobby of District 5.

The first incident happened on Feb. 23. Thomas was pulled over by police near 22nd and Capitol for a traffic violation around 1:55 a.m. There was a warrant for him tied to other traffic violations, so he was arrested and taken to District 5.

District 5 bookers conducted multiple cell checks, but shortly before 6 p.m., Thomas was found unresponsive. Despite life-saving measures, Thomas was pronounced dead, police said.
