9:15 p.m.: MPD asks public to follow stay-at-home order

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales made a public appeal Wednesday, asking everyone to follow Gov. Tony Evers' stay-at-home order.

"Please remember, police officers do not have the option to stay at home," Morales said in a video released Wednesday. "We have taken an oath to protect and serve you."

Under the order, Wisconsinites are to stay home until April 24 and only go out if they need to obtain food, medicine or medical treatment or to work in an essential service field.
