Update On Wautoma Stand-Off

WAUTOMA, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Authorities released more details today about a man who robbed a Wautoma pharmacy, exchanged gunfire with officers, and died during a standoff with police.

According to Waushara County sheriff’s officials, it all started yesterday afternoon when the man robbed the C-H-N Pharmacy of the painkiller Oxycontin. Deputies were called and later found the suspect’s car. An officer shot at the vehicle to try and stop it, but missed.

The man drove into a construction zone and got stuck, so he ran to a house where the occupants were on vacation. There, the man exchanged bullets with an officer. The deputy fired 3-to-5 times, but it was not certain whether any of those hit the suspect.

Neighbors were evacuated. Around 11 last night, a SWAT team from Oshkosh went into the home’s basement and found the suspect shot-to-death. Investigators are still trying to determine if the man shot himself, or was hit by officers.

Officials said the suspect is from Wisconsin, but would not identify him any further for now.
