Attempted Arrest Leaves One Dead In Ashland

The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating an officer-involved death in the city of Ashland that occurred on Wednesday afternoon, May 22nd.  A U.S. Marshals-led task force operating in the Western District of Wisconsin, which included local law enforcement agencies, attempted to apprehend a male subject with a warrant at a residence in Ashland but the subject got into a vehicle and pushed a U.S. Marshal’s vehicle for a distance.  As the subject was attempting to flee in the vehicle, law enforcement officers observed the subject handling a firearm.  Law enforcement fired on the subject and hit the subject in the car.  Law enforcement began life-saving measures on the subject, but the subject was pronounced dead at the scene.  No law enforcement officers were injured during this incident.  Two deputy U.S. marshals and one Sheboygan police officer, who was working with the task force, were involved in this incident.
