Report: Madison cop shooting victim "disoriented" when entering wrong house

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A roommate of a man killed by Madison Police said he got disoriented – and he thought he was entering his own house when he was shot while going into a neighbor’s place.

Amelia Royko-Maurer told the Wisconsin State Journal that both houses looked about the same – both she and the shooting victim had just recently moved to Madison – and he was an unarmed, non-violent man.

30-year-old Paul Heenan was shot early last Friday in what police called an apparent burglary attempt. Police have not said whether he was armed at the time.

WKOW-TV first reported that the shooter was officer Stephen Heimsness, who was suspended for 15 days for using excessive force in a 2001 incident. He’s on administrative leave, along with officer Stacy Troumbly – who provided medical help to Heenan after the shooting.

Maurer said Heenan was a recording engineer and musician who used to live in Madison, and moved back recently from New York.
