Milwaukee County district attorney John Chisholm said Thursday the charges against 18-year-old Julius Burton carry a maximum penalty of 60 years in prison.
Police say two officers approached Burton on Tuesday because he looked suspicious and he began firing without provocation.
Police Chief Edward Flynn says the more seriously injured officer remains in critical condition.
