MADISON (AP) — Blood tests show a Madison police officer who shot and killed 19-year-old Tony Robinson was sober after the shooting.

The Wisconsin Professional Police Association on Thursday, March 26th released results of tests on samples of Matt Kenny’s blood collected about two hours after he shot Tony Robinson on March 6th. The tests found no signs of alcohol or drugs in Kenny’s system.

Kenny shot Robinson after responding to calls that Robinson had attacked two people and was running in traffic. The incident drove members of the city’s black community to stage daily protests for about a week. The rallies were all peaceful, although demonstrators called for Kenny to be charged with homicide.

The state Justice Department plans to turn over a report on the incident to Dane County prosecutors this week.
