MADISON, Wis. – Chants of “Black lives matter” filled the streets of Madison, Wisconsin overnight, after a police officer reportedly shot and killed a 19-year-old black man.

Police said the officer was responding to reports of a man jumping in and out of traffic and hitting people.

The officer said he heard a disturbance at the apartment the suspect had entered.  The officer forced his way into the apartment and, according to the officer, the teen assaulted him.

Police say the officer shot and killed the teen during the struggle.

The teen did not appear to be armed.

    Don’t assault a police officer and you’ll live. Do you think a cop will physically fight to apprehend a suspect and risk getting hurt or killed?
