A friend of Tony Robinson’s said a cleaning crew was out at 1125 Williamson St. Thursday cleaning up what was left of the shooting scene, but family and friends plan to keep a memorial going.
“I'm surviving. It's the loss of a family member, someone you loved, someone you got to talk to, hug, laugh with, spend time with, converse with,” Melvin Ivy said. “It's hard to regenerate something you'll never be able to have again.”
Ivy, who is the uncle of some of Robinson’s best friends, spent most of his time outside Thursday, rearranging the makeshift memorial people had contributed.
Robinson was shot and killed by Madison police officer Matthew Kenny Friday night. Police said they were responding reports of to a man jumping in and out of traffic and a possible battery at the time.
Police said Kenny entered the residence Robinson went into and was allegedly assaulted by Robinson. That’s when, police said, Kenny fired his weapon.
