Dangerous discovery made by troubleshooter

Troubleshooter Fenon Muhammad was driving on 33rd Street in Milwaukee last Thursday when something caught his eye. He stopped to take a closer look and was shocked to find a loaded semi-automatic handgun lying in the middle of the street.

Fenon had just seen children in the area. It was around 8:30 in the morning, right when kids are going to school. Fearing the gun could easily fall into the wrong hands, Fenon decided to take it to the police station a few blocks away.

“I was hoping it was just a toy gun, but when I realized it was real, I knew I had to take action,” said Fenon.

Fenon’s supervisors are incredibly thankful that he took such quick action.

“I would like to recognize Fenon for his care, concern and diligence towards the community in which we serve,” said Operations Manager Eddie Nash. “He took the initiative to notify the Milwaukee Police Department instead of ignoring the gun and moving on about his business. In a time and community where violence is rampant, ignoring the find could have surely resulted in someone getting injured or even worse.”

Operations Supervisor Fred Treu echoed those sentiments. “Fenon very well could have saved someone’s life.”

Fenon received a special commendation from his supervisors under Customer Operation’s Quick Thanks program. The veteran employee will celebrate his 18th service anniversary in March. This is the first time he has found a gun while on duty and hopes it will be his last.
