Slain Wisconsin officer hailed as hero
Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel has commended the law enforcement response to a series of shootings in the north of the state that left four people dead, including a police officer.
Schimel issued a statement Thursday applauding the courage of officers who responded to Wednesday’s shootings at a bank, a law firm and an apartment building.
He said the Everest Metro police officer who was killed was protecting his community and will be forever remembered as a hero.
Authorities arrested a suspect in the attacks, which they say began with a domestic dispute. They haven’t provided details about the suspect or victims.
