Madison Police Shooting: What We Know About Officer Matt Kenny's 2007 Incident

Madison Police Shooting: What We Know About Officer Matt Kenny's 2007 IncidentNews reports from the time detail how Officer Matt Kenny was not only exonerated from wrongdoing in the 2007 shooting and received the medal of valor the following year for that incident. Kenny, a 12-year veteran of the Madison Police Department, is now on paid administrative leave as the investigation into the Friday shooting death of 19-year-old Tony Robinson continues. The first time Kenny fatally shot someone while on the force came in June 2007 when he and two other officers responded to a 911 call from a man named Ronald Brandon who said that a man was waving a gun around, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. When Brandon, 48, who had been drinking, called 911 to report the man, he failed to mention that he was the person in question or that the gun he was holding was an unloaded pellet gun, police said at the time.
