MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A Madison, Wisconsin police officer will not face charges in the fatal shooting of an unarmed 19-year-old biracial man in March, the prosecutor said on Tuesday.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said at a news conference that Matt Kenny, a veteran white police officer, used lawful lethal force when he shot Tony Robinson Jr. in the head, torso and right arm.
