MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Former Milwaukee Police Officer Jon Bartlett fired 10 bullets through a Lincoln Town Car windshield four years ago because he thought a motorist was trying to run him over and kill him, he testified Monday.

Bartlett, 34, spent almost four hours on the witness stand as the federal civil trial stretched into a second week. He calmly answered questions from the lawyer hired by the family of Larry Jenkins, 31, who was shot to death by Bartlett on a Milwaukee street in 2002.
