DA’s office: Quadren Wilson to appear in court on new drug charge Wednesday
MADISON, Wis. — Quadren Wilson, the man shot by state law enforcement officers during an attempted arrest just over two weeks ago, is expected to appear in court Wednesday on a new drug charge, according to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office.
Officials with the DA’s office said Wilson has one drug case filed and another that’s still under review. His initial appearance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. As of 1:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, no charges had been filed against Wilson.
Law enforcement officials have shared few details about the circumstances leading up to Wilson’s arrest and subsequent shooting. On Friday, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office — which is investigating the incident because their officers were not involved — said that a total of 21 law enforcement officers were involved in the attempted arrest.
Two agents with the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation reportedly fired their weapons during the incident, but they have not yet been identified.
Members of Wilson’s family said after the shooting that the 38-year-old was shot in the back five times and was unarmed at the time of the incident. Law enforcement have yet to share any information about how many times Wilson was shot or whether or not he was armed at the time.
Late last week, Wilson’s family and friends rallied outside of the Dane County Jail to call for Wilson to be returned to the hospital for treatment of his gunshot wounds.
Early Tuesday, students at La Follette High School in Madison staged a walk-out in support of Wilson. During the walk-out, students demanded greater transparency in the sheriff’s office’s investigation into the shooting.
