Sylville Smith was shot and killed last summer by Heaggan-Brown. The shooting led to days of unrest in Milwaukee's Sherman Park neighborhood.

There were twelve jurors on the jury including nine women and three men. Seven of the jurors are white and five are black.

Immediately after the verdict was announced the family of Sylville Smith left the courtroom in tears. The family of Heaggan-Brown let out a small cheer.
