Wednesday, December 26th, 2012 at 6:59 am

Wisconsin authorities are looking into the death of a suburban Milwaukee police officer who was killed on duty.

Wauwatosa Lt. Gerald Witkowski told the Associated Press that dispatchers unsuccessfully tried to reach 30-year-old Jennifer Lynn Sebena for a call about 3 a.m. Monday. Officers started looking for her and found her dead with several gunshot wounds about 5 a.m.

The case is considered a homicide, and at this time officers have no suspects.

Witkowski told the AP that Sebena enrolled in the police academy in January 2011 and began working solo in July. He says she was married and described her as a great person and officer.

Police are urging witnesses to come forward.

The state Justice Department’s criminal investigation unit is helping in the investigation.
