Tests: Madison officer was sober after shooting

Posted: Updated:
 MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Blood tests show a white Madison Police officer who killed a biracial man was sober after the shooting.

   The Wisconsin Professional Police Association on Thursday released results of tests on samples of Matt Kenny's blood collected about two hours after he shot Tony Robinson on March 6. The tests found no signs of alcohol or drugs in Kenny's system.

   Kenny shot Robinson after responding to calls that Robinson had attacked two people and was running in traffic. The incident drove members of the city's black community to stage daily protests for about a week. The rallies were all peaceful, although demonstrators called for Kenny to be charged with homicide.

   The state Justice Department plans to turn over a report on the incident to Dane County prosecutors this week.
