Police in Wisconsin say an officer is among the victims in a shooting in the small town of Rothschild.
Wausau Police Capt. Todd Baeten would not give details on the officer’s injuries. But he said authorities were in contact with the suspect at an apartment complex and were trying to engage him. He gave no other details.
Authorities say the shooting began at Marathon Savings Bank about 12:30 p.m. They say officers were responding to a reported domestic situation and arrived to find two people had been shot.
