Milwaukee Man Changes Plea In Officer Shootings

by

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A 19-year-old Milwaukee man pleaded guilty Thursday to shooting 2 police officers in broad daylight last summer. Julius Burton had pleaded insanity, but he agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a possible reduction in his prison sentence. Prosecutors say they’ll recommend 50 years behind bars instead of the maximum of 90. But Circuit Judge Patricia McMahon will not have to follow that recommendation when she sentences Burton on February 25th. Officers Bryan Norberg and Graham Kunisch were shot and wounded last June when they tried to give Burton a ticket for a riding his bicycle on a sidewalk instead of the street. Authorities said Burton pulled out a 40-caliber Taurus pistol and shot the officers from several feet away. Kunisch lost one of his eyes, and the left side of his face was scarred. Norberg lost some teeth as a bullet went through one of his jaws. The shooting happened at 3 p.m. in a neighborhood close to Milwaukee’s main entertainment district.
