Documents: Wisconsin shooting victim suffered from anxiety
The Associated Press
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Court documents indicate the unarmed black man who died at the hands of a white Wisconsin police officer suffered from attention deficit disorder and anxiety.
Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny shot 19-year-old Tony Robinson on Friday. Kenny was responding to a call that Robinson had been jumping in and out of traffic and had been responsible for a battery. The officer forced his way into an apartment where Robinson had gone and shot him during a confrontation.
Robinson pleaded guilty in an armed robbery last year. Documents in that case show Robinson suffered from ADHD, anxiety and depression. The documents said he tended to be anti-social and impulsive and was a risk-taker.
A phone call to Robinson's mother and grandmother's home seeking comment on the documents rang unanswered Monday.
