KEWASKUM, Wis. (AP) — Three people are dead, including a man who exchanged gunfire with deputies, following a home invasion in eastern Wisconsin, authorities said.
Someone at a residence in the Town of Kewaskum called 911 on Wednesday afternoon after a man forced his way into the Washington County home and demanded keys to a vehicle, authorities said. The man then fatally shot a resident of the home before officers arrived.
A neighbor who heard the gunshots called 911 to report a man with a gun was walking toward his or her house, officials said. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and exchanged gunfire with the man, who then ran away.
Officers established a perimeter and searched for the man using a drone, and they eventually found him in the area. He was dead from a gunshot wound and a gun was found nearby.
