Trammell ran a publishing company and was a common figure in discussions about the neighborhood. He has been a regular voice in his support of our president.
Police say they have found no motive for the murder that was done execution style with a bullet through the back of the head.
Bernell Trammell was shot in the head execution style broad daylight yesterday in front of his store. He was a God fearing Trump supporting man. Was it because he was a Trump supporter? He didn't look for fights, he lived a good life. Sick and sad! @GovTonyEvers get it together! pic.twitter.com/Y75V7UODZM

The Heavy.com reported:
Bernell Trammell, a well-known Black supporter of Donald Trump who was a community fixture known for his publishing company and long conversations on religion and politics, often delivered from street corners while holding pro Trump and other signs, was shot to death in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Trammell, 60, was gunned down on July 23 near the very spot where he gave a video interview a few hours before explaining why he supported Trump. Milwaukee police are seeking what they described as “unknown suspects.” The motive is not clear, including whether the slaying was tied into Trammell’s political beliefs or Trump support. Some news outlets gave the victim’s name as Bernell Tremmell, but he goes by Trammell on social media.
Trammell was an ardent supporter of them president and it would be a great tragedy to find out he was murdered strictly for his political beliefs. Police are looking for an unidentified shooter or shooters but somehow I have a sneaky suspicion that he or they will never be found and we will never know then truth.
