Walker weighs in on Madison shooting

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is commenting on the weekend slaying of a 19-year-old man in Madison by a police officer.

Through his spokeswoman, Laurel Patrick, Walker said his "thoughts and prayers are with all those involved."

Walker, a likely presidential candidate, noted that "an overwhelming majority of police officers follow procedures and do a good job of protecting and serving the public."

Tony Robinson died Friday after he was shot by Officer Matt Kenny at an apartment. The death of the unarmed black teen sparked demonstrations in Madison and drew comparisons to recent high-profile killings of black men by police across the country.
