Fricke, 26, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and other crimes in the fatal shooting of 35-year-old Officer Matthew Rittner, who was part of a tactical unit trying to serve a warrant to search the home for illegal drugs and weapons on Wednesday morning.

A man who was charged Sunday with killing a Milwaukee officer during a drug raid on his home told investigators that he didn't realize it was police trying to break down his door, authorities said.

Fricke has admitted to selling marijuana as well as assembling rifles and selling them at gun shows, according to the criminal complaint. 10, 2019, Fricke was charged with first-degree intentional homicide and other crimes in the fatal shooting Wednesday of Officer Matthew Rittner, who was serving a search warrant.

While the door was being breached by police using a ram device, Fricke fired an AK-47 pistol four times through the opening the ram device created, striking Rittner in the chest. While Rittner was using the ram another officer yelled "Police!" and nearly immediately four gunshots are fired through the opening door from inside the apartment. The bullet entered Officer Rittner at the left upper chest/shoulder area and went through the left long, the aorta, the right lung and ended at the right shoulder and chestwall. Rittner was the third Milwaukee officer killed in the line of duty in the past eight months.

Fricke remained in jail Sunday.

Milwaukee police didn't immediately respond to a message Friday asking if Fricke had an attorney.
