Group demanding Brown Deer officer charged in man’s shooting be fired

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) – A group called The Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee are demanding the firing or resignation of Brown Deer Police Officer Devon Kraemer.

Kraemer was charged with shooting and injuring Manuel Burnley in March 2016. A judge declared a mistrial last month after a jury could not reach a unanimous verdict. Brown Deer Police Chief Michael Kass says the department has not made a decision about Kraemer’s employment and do not know if the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office will re-try Kraemer.

There is a status conference for Kraemer’s case scheduled for next week.
