BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — A 27-year-old man from the Black River Falls area has died in an officer-involved shooting.
Jackson County Sheriff Duane Waldera said the incident started early Saturday, when a deputy investigated a call about disorderly conduct and a possible restraining order violation.
Waldera said a car chase ensued after the deputy arrived, when the subject of the complaint apparently tried to drive to the residence of the person who complained.
The name of the deceased has not been released.
The deputy has been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated. The Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation will lead the investigation and turn the results over to the Jackson County district attorney’s office.
