A jury found Badger Guns negligent Tuesday in the sale of the gun used to shoot two Milwaukee police officers in 2009.

Milwaukee police Officers Bryan Norberg and Graham Kunisch were shot in the face by Julius Burton in 2009 while on duty.

The lawsuit alleged the store was negligent and should have spotted clear warning signs that the gun was being sold to a “straw buyer,” or someone who was buying the gun for someone who couldn’t legally do so.

The jurors said Badger Guns’ negligence caused the injuries of the officers.

The jury awarded Norberg $1.5 million and Kunisch about $3.5 million, in addition to $730,000 in punitive damages.
