Jurors order a Wisconsin gun store to pay nearly $6 million to two Milwaukee police officers who were shot and seriously wounded by a gun purchased at the store.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:
Surveillance video from Badger Guns in West Milwaukee shows in 2009 Julius Burton's friend is struggling to fill out forms and Burton pointing to a gun saying, "that's the one that I want."
The same gun that Burton later used to shoot and severely injure Milwaukee police officers Graham Kunisch and Bryan Norberg...
(DiMotto) "Was such sale by Badger Guns to Jacob Collins negligence? The jury answered this question... Yes."
Judge John DiMotto... The jury awarded the officers just under $6 million.
It's the first plaintiff's verdict in a string of lawsuits against gun dealers for injury caused by the guns they sell. The defense expects to appeal.
