The shooting was the third incident in nine months in which a Madison police officer has shot and killed someone.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Dane County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man shot and killed by Madison police last weekend.
An autopsy Monday confirmed 59-year-old Charles Carll died of gunshot wounds. Three officers involved in the shooting are on paid leave. They were among officers called to a domestic dispute Saturday afternoon in Madison.
The State Journal reports officers were told the man had injured his wife, was suicidal and still armed with a knife. He says officers unsuccessfully tried to stun him with a Taser. He said the man ignored commands and continued acting aggressively to the officers, so they opened fire.
Authorities later determined the subject's wife was not injured.
