MILWAUKEE - A judge upholds the firing of the Milwaukee police officer who killed Dontre Hamilton.

Former officer Christopher Manney was fired for his actions leading up to Hamilton's 2014 shooting, but not for the shooting itself.

Manney appealed his firing in court after losing his first appeal before the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission.

A judge found Manney was fired for violating department rules...and that his decision to frisk Hamilton escalated a routine police encounter into a catastrophe.

Hamilton was shot 14 times after Manney responded to a complaint of a man sleeping in a park.

Manney said he was attacked and he opened fire in self-defense.

The former officer was never charged in the shooting.
