KENOSHA, Wis. — A 29-year-old man suspected of shooting and wounding a Kenosha police officer last weekend is under arrest in Indiana, authorities said Wednesday.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice said the suspect was arrested Tuesday night in Gary, Indiana, on suspicion of attempted first-degree intentional homicide. When he was arrested, the man was found to have a gunshot wound to the abdomen, was taken to a hospital and later released. He is in an Indiana jail awaiting extradition.
Authorities said the 30-year-old officer was shot early Saturday while investigating a possible illegal entry into a car. Police say the officer returned fire. The officer was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.
The Wisconsin DOJ's Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the incident.
