MILWAUKEE -- The second pair of Milwaukee police officers to sue Badger Guns will have to wait a little longer for their civil case to be heard.  After three days of interviewing potential jurors, the judge Wednesday told the entire panel to go home. 

The 2007 shooting happened near 13th and Greenfield.  Alejandro Arce and Jose Lopez III were undercover and interviewing witnesses to a shooting when they were both shot.

Like the other case that was settled last fall, this gun was traced to a purchase made at Badger Guns.  That jury awarded $6 million to Officers Graham Kunisch and Bryan Norberg, but the two settled on $1 million.

It's not clear what dollar amount, if any, has been established in the latest case involving Officers Arce and Lopez.

Badger Guns was reported to have been a supplier to the most guns used in crimes back in 2005 by the ATF.

The judge thanked potential jurors for their service over the last three days. He says the Badger Guns trial will resume Monday morning with a new pool of potential jurors.
