MILWAUKEE- A Milwaukee police homicide detective arrested in an off-duty incident will not be charged. 

According to a statement by the Milwaukee County DA's office, "Due to insufficient evidence, no criminal charges will be issued."

Detective Rudolfo Gomez has 10 years experience on the force and is sitting in jail Friday.  MPD won't say why they arrested the detective, but sources say it involves domestic violence.

"When we find one of our department members in violation of our code of conduct we're going to take appropriate action," said Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn.

Early Thursday morning, MPD was forced to arrest Gomez because of his actions.  He was off-duty at the time.  Police haven't said what he did, but sources told TODAY'S TMJ4 it's connected to battery.

TODAY'S TMJ4 stopped by Gomez's house to see if anyone could shed light on the investigation, but no one answered.

"The investigation is on-going," said Police Chief Flynn.  "He's currently in custody he's been suspended."

Milwaukee police have not released any additional information or updates on the investigation.
