DOJ investigates officer-involved fatal shooting in Beloit

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - The state Justice Department is investigating the shooting death of a 23-year-old man by Beloit police officers.

Police captain Vince Sciame said officers had the man under surveillance -- and after he left a residence, officers tried stopping his car.

Two unmarked police officers tried boxing the suspect in, and a third squad car arrived to help. An officer told the suspect to put his car in “park” – but instead, the vehicle rammed into a police car to the front.

The man apparently drove at one of the other officers when two others fired shots. The suspect then drove into a building and died at the scene.

The two shooters were put on administrative leave, pending investigations by both the state and Beloit Police.

The man had been wanted for violating a previous probation – but it was not disclosed what type of crime the probation was connected with.
