DOJ agent who shot unarmed Black man must stand trial, judge orders
Prosecutors allege that Special Agent Mark Wagner, who is white, opened fire on Quadren Wilson during a traffic stop in Madison, Wisconsin in February 2022. MADISON, WIS. (AP) — A Wisconsin Department of Justice agent who wounded an unarmed Black man during a Madison traffic stop last year must stand trial over whether the shooting was justified. Dane County Circuit Judge Chris Taylor ordered Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mark Wagner to stand trial on one count of second-degree reckless endangerment following a preliminary hearing Thursday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. Prosecutors allege Wagner, who is white, opened fire on Quadren Wilson during the traffic stop on Madison’s far east side in February 2022. Taylor, the judge, said she was bound by state law to bind Wagner over for trial because prosecutors made a plausible showing that a crime occurred.thewestsidegazette.com
