Madison officers cleared in fatal shooting
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Madison’s police chief says the three officers who shot and killed a man with a sword last month are free to return to work. Chief Noble Wray says the officers’ use of deadly force against Brent Brozek was justified. The officers say they shot and killed the 43-year-old man with a history of mental illness after he lunged at them with a sword May 17th. Brozek had refused to leave his condo after being evicted. Dane County sheriff’s officials say Brozek was taken to mental health facilities in 2004 and 2008 as part of court-ordered commitments. Earlier this month, the Dane County district attorney said no charges would be filed against the officers.
