African American Trump supporter fatally shot outside his Milwaukee business

Bernell Trammell, a 60-year old African American man who was known in his community for his support of President Trump, was reportedly shot and killed in front of his store. The police are still searching for the unknown shooter.

According to authorities, the incident happened while Trammell was sitting on the sidewalk of his publishing company. An unknown shooter then gunned him down execution-style.

Trammell, who owned a publication called eXpressions Journal, was a known political activist and Trump supporter. He also advocated for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Because of Trammell’s well-known political activism and the possibility that his murder could be politically motivated, I respectfully request that United States Attorney Matthew Krueger open an investigation,” Andrew Hitt, chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Police are looking for a suspect in the shooting, described as a man believed to be in his 30s. He was last seen riding a black bicycle while wearing a white and red baseball cap, a black mask and a black and red long sleeve shirt.

“He had a right to have his voice, and he was so strong to do it alone,” said Pia Lombardi, a friend of more than 20 years. “I would hope that people think that this is a senseless murder and a good man died here for no reason. We lost a man who cared about people, even if they were different than him.”

Officials, including Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Andrew Hitt, the chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, expressed the need for justice for Trammell’s family in the days following his death. Hitt said in a statement that the community also needs to know if the shooting was politically motivated.
