Chief Noble Wray makes statement on latest officer-involved shooting


MADISON (WKOW) --- Madison Police Chief Noble Wray made a statement in regards to the officer involved shooting on Saturday.

"The Madison Police Department continues to investigate the Department's third officer involved shooting (OIS) in the last nine months. The OIS that took place this past weekend is unfortunate and tragic for family and friends of Mr. Charles Carll, for the officers who were involved, and for our community. Our hearts go out to Mr. Carll's family, and to others impacted by the loss of his life.  These incidents also have a significant impact on the involved officers and their families, and the department is providing support to them as the investigation continues.  Members of MPD's officer involved critical incident team are in the process of completing their investigation. Once finished, it will be forwarded to Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne. My expectation is that we will proceed with our internal investigation after District Attorney Ozanne has finished his review. At this juncture, MPD's preliminary investigation indicates that officers were justified in their actions. However, it is early in the investigation and final conclusions have not yet been reached. "
