Man taken for mental evaluation after claiming to have killed people he didn't

by

SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - A man in Superior was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation, after he claimed to have killed two people and didn’t.

Superior Police and Douglas County sheriff’s officers were called to a home late Thursday afternoon, to check out a report of gunshots.

One person left the building and said shots were fired, and smoke alarms were set off. A short time later, the purported suspect came out of the house and said he killed two people.

He was promptly arrested, and officers went inside, expecting to find dead bodies. But all they could find was a child who was unharmed.

Officers said nobody was hurt during the incident.
