Two Milwaukee police officers, wounded by gunfire, are suing the store that allegedly sold the weapons used to injure them.

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed the lawsuit in Milwaukee County Thursday on behalf of Officers Alejandro Arce and Jose Lopez against Badger Guns.

The lawsuit alleges the gun dealer negligently and illegally sold a handgun and assault weapon used to shoot the two officers in November 2007. The buyer had a criminal record.

Badger Gun owner Adam Allan says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit, but says blame should be directed at the people who shot the officers, not his business. Two young males were convicted in the shooting that injured five people, including the two officers.

The 40-page lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
