Guilty verdict in killing of Milwaukee officer Submitted: 07/12/2019
MILWAUKEE - A jury Friday found a man guilty of murder in the shooting death of Milwaukee police officer Matthew Rittner.

Jordan Fricke, 27, was convicted after a little more than an hour of deliberations by the jury.

Fricke testified he believed he heard gunshots and fired in self-defense.

Officer Rittner was actually using a battering ram to serve a search warrant on Fricke's home in February.

Prosecutors argued Fricke had to know it was police because they loudly announced their presence.
