Milwaukee, Wisconsin — Newly released body camera footage shows a Milwaukee police officer shooting the wrong man during the pursuit of a suspect. The shooting, which stemmed from a police pursuit, happened in Sept. 8, 2019, near North 26th Street and West Auer Avenue. The body camera video was not released by the Milwaukee Police Department or by Tari Davis’ attorney; rather, by Davis himself – publishing it on his website. Officer Nikolas Zens was chasing a suspect who fled a traffic stop. Kevin Brown, the suspect officers were pursuing, had bailed from his vehicle and fled on foot toward Davis’ home. Courts documents state an officer thought Brown was reaching for a weapon. When the officer fired his gun, Davis was shot in the stomach. Zens was later fired by the Fire and Police Commission after they determined he violated department policy when he fired the single shot. Brown, the suspect police were pursuing, was charged and convicted in this case.
