Police said the officers responded to a domestic violence call at 5214 Hammersley Road around 3:20 p.m. Saturday and arrived to find a man with a knife. The officers say the man ignored verbal warnings and was tasered, but still acted aggressively towards them. That is when the officers shot the man, who still has not been identified.
Police say the initial call from dispatch indicated the man's wife called 9-1-1 and said she had been stabbed in the stomach. But Police later said she had not been injured.
Madison Police investigators spent most of Monday still on scene, going over the events with the officers who were involved.
The Dane County Medical Examiner's Office is not expected to release the name of the suspect until late Monday night or Tuesday morning.
