UpdateThe following is a statement from Madison Police Chief Noble Wray:
The Madison Police Department continues to investigate the Department's third officer involved shooting (OIS) in the last nine months. The OIS that took place this past weekend is unfortunate and tragic for family and friends of Mr. Charles Carll, for the officers who were involved, and for our community. Our hearts go out to Mr. Carll's family, and to others impacted by the loss of his life. These incidents also have a significant impact on the involved officers and their families, and the department is providing support to them as the investigation continues. Members of MPD's officer involved critical incident team are in the process of completing their investigation. Once finished, it will be forwarded to Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne. My expectation is that we will proceed with our internal investigation after District Attorney Ozanne has finished his review. At this juncture, MPD's preliminary investigation indicates that officers were justified in their actions. However, it is early in the investigation and final conclusions have not yet been reached.
UPDATE FROM ASSISTANT CHIEF JOHN DAVENPORT
8/18/13 at 2:00 p.m.
The Madison Police Department Officer Involved Critical Incident Team is continuing the Officer Involved Shooting Investigation that occurred on Saturday, August 17, 2013. Please see previous media incident report. Shortly after 3 p.m. Madison Police Officers were dispatched to a domestic in progress in the 5200 block of Hammersley Road. Dispatch reported to the Madison Police Department that the involved husband had cut his wife in the stomach with a knife. Further information was conveyed to the officers that the male subject was outside, was suicidal and armed with a knife. Officers engaged the subject and deployed a Taser, which was unsuccessful. The armed male subject ignored the officers verbal commands and aggressed towards the officers who then deployed deadly force. It was later learned his wife was not injured. The officers involved are veteran officers of the department and have been placed on administrative leave as a departmental procedure following a critical incident. The District Attorney has been to the scene of the incident and the Dane County Sheriff's Office is observing the investigation of this incident. Further information will be released when available.
