Kewaunee County District Attorney Andrew Naze plans to announce his office’s findings Tuesday in the officer-involved shooting death of a Luxemburg man.
Naze said in a news release Monday that the state Division of Criminal Investigation has completed its investigation and turned investigative materials over to him on Sept. 29.
“The material has been reviewed and the District Attorney is prepared to give a statement regarding the events of Aug. 21, 2017,” the release said.
Tyler Whitmire, 22, was killed in an incident along County Highway AB south of Stangelville, which began after the Sheriff’s Department received a report that a man was threatening a woman and nearby residents with a knife. Few other details have been released.
Authorities did say that Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Deputy Jamie Tlachac, a five-year veteran of the department, fired the fatal shot and that three other officers were at the scene – Sgt. Dustin E. Smidle, who has 22 years of service with the department; Deputy Jordan D. Salentine, who has three years of service; and city of Kewaunee Police Officer Brian D. Gale, with four years of service.
Naze’s news release indicates that “the district attorney will provide his charging decision” regarding the incident. Sheriff Matt Joski is also planning to attend the Tuesday afternoon news conference.
