MADISON (WKOW) -- A Dane County 911 Center official tells 27 News the wife of an armed man never told a call-taker anyone had been stabbed, before police officers fatally shot him.
But authorities say a dispatcher told responding officers 59-year old Charles Carll's wife had been cut in the stomach July 21. Police officials say officers found Carll in his backyard on Hammersley Road with a knife. After he refused to obey police commands and could not be stopped by a taser, authorities say three officers fatally shot Carll.
911 Center Operations Director Paul Logan told 27 News Wednesday the call-taker entered information from the wife's call into a computer, and a dispatcher "interpreted" the computer notes to indicate someone had been stabbed.
Logan Friday told 27 News the victim's wife did not reference any stabbing when she spoke to the call-taker.
Logan said the handling of the call is being reviewed. Logan said the call-taker and the dispatcher have a combined twelve years of experience as staff members.
