DCI says suspect fatally shot during standoff in Loyal
LOYAL, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation says one person has died after a standoff with law enforcement officers in Clark County.
It happened early Friday morning in Loyal.
WSAW-TV reports DCI says during the standoff at the suspect's residence, the suspect fired at law enforcement and struck a Clark County deputy, who officials say will be OK.
As the standoff continued, law enforcement officers deployed gas into the residence. And when officers entered the residence, the suspect began firing and was shot by a Marathon County deputy, who has been placed on standard administrative leave.
DCI is continuing to collect evidence and determine the facts of this incident and will turn over investigative reports to the Clark County District Attorney's Office when the investigation concludes.
