Matt Kenny shot 19-year-old Tony Robinson in an apartment house near the state Capitol on March 6. Kenny was responding to calls that Robinson had attacked two people and was running in traffic. Police said Robinson assaulted Kenny before he was shot but have released no other details.

The incident has sparked multiple protests, with demonstrators demanding Kenny be charged with homicide.

The DOJ has been investigating the incident. A spokeswoman said the agency turned over all its findings to Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne on Friday.

Ozanne has said he doesn’t have a timetable on a charging decision.
