MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A woman shot and killed by Madison Police has been identified as 26-year-old Ashley DiPiazza.
The state Justice Department continues to investigate the officers' role in the incident, which occurred early Sunday at the apartment DiPiazza shared with her boyfriend.
Officials said the man called 911, saying he left the apartment after his girlfriend threatened him with a handgun.
After officers arrived, they said DiPiazza refused to comply with their instructions -- and the officers felt threatened, so at least one of them shot her.
An autopsy confirmed that she died from gunshot wounds.
