Mom of biracial man killed by police trusts prosecutor
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The mother of a biracial man fatally shot by a white Wisconsin police officer says she trusts prosecutors will seek the truth as they review the case.
Andrea (AHN'-dreh-ah) Irwin told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she believes District Attorney Ismael Ozanne will thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding the death of 19-year-old Tony Robinson. She says she doesn't know enough about what happened to form an opinion.
Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny shot Robinson on March 6. Police have said Robinson attacked Kenny as the officer was responding to calls that Robinson had assaulted two people and was running in traffic.
Few details have emerged. State agents completed an investigation last week and handed their findings to Ozanne, who must decide whether to charge Kenny.
