Prosecutors to Announce Findings in Police Shooting in Madison

A prosecutor is set to announce Tuesday whether a white police officer will face charges for killing a young unarmed biracial man in Madison.

Here's a few things to know about the case:

  • Officer Matt Kenny shot 19-year-old Tony Robinson in an apartment house on March 6. Kenny was responding to calls that Robinson had assaulted two people and was running in traffic. Police say Robinson attacked Kenny but have released few other details.
  • The shooting has prompted protests, all peaceful. The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition has been leading the demonstrations. The organization wants Kenny fired and charged with homicide.
  • Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, who is black, plans to announce his charging decision on Tuesday. YGB plans to gather at the apartment house following the decision.
