The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department has turned over the investigation of an officer-involved shooting to the state authorities after a man was shot dead during an incident Monday night. Shortly before 8 p.m., authorities reported to a disturbance two miles south of Stangelville on County Road AB that involved multiple residences. Following the incident, the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was called in to conduct the case per state statute. The identities of both the officer and victim have not yet been released and Sheriff Matt Joski hopes people on traditional and social media respect their families’ privacy.
An autopsy of the victim is currently being conducted and the crime scene remains closed to traffic. Joski says any subsequent updates to the case will come from the DCI over the upcoming days and weeks.
