Madison officers cleared in fatal shooting of armed man

The Madison Police Department released the findings of their review of an October shooting in which officers shot and killed an armed man.

In a letter released Friday, Acting Chief Vic Wahl said the Professional Standards & Internal Affairs section conducted a review of the shooting.

"That review is complete, and all involved employees were found to have acted in compliance with the department’s Use of Deadly Force and De-escalation standard operating procedures," Wahl said.

The review found three minor equipment violations. One officer did not have his wireless microphone appropriately synced with the in-car video system in his vehicle, and two others did not have the "appropriate" number of bullets in their rifle magazines.
