AG: Report on Madison shooting to prosecutor in 2 weeks

DCI investigation includes more than 100 reports, 60 witness interviews

Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said Thursday he expects the investigation report into Friday’s officer-involved shooting in Madison to be ready to send to the Dane County District attorney in two weeks.

Schimel held a news conference about the Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation into the officer-involved shooting in which Madison police officer Matthew Kenny shot Tony Robinson after he allegedly assaulted Kenny.

“At the end of the day, this is a human tragedy,” Schimel said. “My heart goes out to the family of Tony Robinson.”

Although Schimel expects the report to be complete in two weeks, the state has been working with the district attorney to pass along progress and facts as they come forward, so he “won’t be in the dark for two weeks.”

“There are parts we can’t control,” Schimel said. “We don’t know when we will get toxicology reports back.”

According to Department of Criminal Investigation Administrator David Matthews, the state is working on 100 investigative reports, 60 witness interviews and approaching  40 households for neighborhood canvas to get additional information.

A DCI administrator said the department is working to provide Robinson’s family with information.

“I appreciate the way the family of Tony Robinson has handled this very difficult situation,” Schimel said.

Schimel hopes the public will stay calm, patient and peaceful while waiting for the determination of the case.
