Mayfair Mall was a shooting site in February in which city police officer Joseph Mansah shot and killed Alvin Cole, a 17-year-old black. Police said Cole was fleeing the police; Mensah, who is also Black, said that he shot Cole because Cole aimed his gun at him. The mall was the target of sporadic protests over several months in the aftermath of the shooting.
A Milwaukee County attorney refused to press charges against Mansah, but this week the city agreed to a separation agreement under which at least $ 130,000 would be paid to Mansah to leave the force.. .
