A report by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, published in Monday's Green Bay Press-Gazette, said that the Madison Police Department's detailed accounts so far have made no mention of homeowner Kevin O'Malley's contention that he attempted to inform a Madison police officer that intruder Paul Heenan was a neighbor before the officer shot and killed Heenan on Nov. 9. At a Nov. 12 news conference, Police Chief Noble Wray made no mention of that issue in his formal statement. However, a reporter asked Wray about reports that before the shooting, people were yelling that Heenan was a neighbor, and Wray responded, without mentioning O'Malley: "A statement similar to that, I have heard, is part of the investigation." Wray declined to comment on O'Malley's statement before the Center's report was published, saying he would wait until an internal investigation is completed, a position that he reiterated through a spokesman on Monday.
