Man shot by Madison police identified

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified a man shot and killed by Madison police on Saturday as 59-year-old Charles Carll. Madison Police officers were dispatched to Carll’s west side home on a report that a man had cut his wife with a knife and was outside armed with the knife. Officers said Carll ignored verbal warnings and was tasered, but still acted aggressively towards them prior to being shot. Carll’s wife was subsequently found uninjured.

MPD Officers Alex Bol, Adrian Alan and Ed Marshall have been placed on paid administrative leave, pending an investigation into the shooting.
