Brookfield officers cleared in deadly December shooting

WAUKESHA COUNTY — Two Brookfield officers are cleared of wrongdoing after a man takes his own life during a traffic stop.

Officials say the 52-year-old man was stopped last December in the parking lot of the Quality Inn on Bluemound.

He had a warrant out for his arrest.
