More details are expected to be released Tuesday morning regarding an officer-involved shooting in the town of Franklin south of Stangelville on Monday evening.
Sheriff Matt Joski said the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department was called to an incident just after 8 p.m. Monday, “which resulted in an officer-involved shooting.” Emergency vehicles congregated in an area near the intersection of County Road AB and Old Settlers Road.
“The officer involved in this incident was not harmed, unfortunately the suspect is deceased,” Joski said in a news release. At this stage the identities of neither the officer nor the suspect will be released, he said.
The Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigations will serve as the lead agency in the matter.
A 9 a.m. news conference is planned, Joski said.
