MADISON, WI  (WNS) - The Dane County District Attorney’s office has cleared a Madison police officer who shot and killed a man last month. 

Paul Keenan entered his neighbor’s house November 9th. When officer Stephen Heimsness arrived with his weapon drawn, Heenan charged him. The homeowner confirmed the officer’s version of the events. Heimsness says he thought Heenan was trying to grab his gun, so he shot the man because he feared for his life.

DA Ismael Ozanne says Officer Heimsness didn’t violate any statutes. He says anyone who believes he or she faces a genuine threat of deadly force is allowed to respond with deadly force. Keenan had been drinking that night and was apparently confused, entering the wrong house and setting off the fatal incident.
