Police have reopened the a near east Madison street that was closed overnight after a teen was shot and killed by an officer Friday.
A portion of the 1100 block of Williamson Street was blocked off by officers after an incident involving police that left a 19-year-old dead and a community searching for answers.
Madison police said an officer responded to a report of a disturbance on Williamson Street at 6:29 p.m. Madison police chief Mike Koval said in a news conference Friday night that the police officer shot the teen after he allegedly assaulted the officer.
The Dane County medical examiner confirmed the man killed was Tony Robinson, a recent graduate of Sun Prairie High School.
On Saturday morning, police were still present at the house where the incident took place. Police were still at the site to secure a small part of the scene, the police department said.
Protesters gathered on the scene Friday night. The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition hosted a packed crowd at a community meeting at the YWCA on Madison's south side Saturday morning. A crowd gathered outside the City-County Building in downtown Madison carrying signs protesting the police shooting.
The Urban League of Greater Madison said in a statement Saturday that it "is deeply disturbed and saddened by the police shooting of 19-year old Tony Robinson." Multiple events were planned Saturday to gather the community and offer support.
