[su_right_ad]First reports are that the teenager was unarmed.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval told reporters that an officer responded to a disturbance at around 6:30 p.m. local time and later forced his way into an apartment that the 19-year-old, who was also suspected of a recent battery, had gone into.

Koval said that a struggle between the suspect and the officer ensued and the teen was fatally shot, according to a recording of the news conference published by broadcaster WKOW.

”The initial finding at the scene did not reflect a gun or anything of that nature that would have been used by the subject,” Koval said…

The Wisconsin State Journal newspaper reported that friends of the teenager, identified as Anthony “Tony” Robinson by demonstrators, gathered at the site and said he was a happy person.

    His mother said he wasn’t a violent person and now the UK Daily Mail is reporting that he was convicted of an armed home invasion. This ought to get interesting.
