One person was shot and killed by a Dane County Sheriff’s deputy Sunday afternoon in the village of Oregon after officers received a call about a weapons violation, according to Sheriff Kalvin Barrett.

Around 11 a.m. Sunday, the Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about a weapons violation on Jefferson Street in Oregon. Deputies and emergency responders began “actively” searching for a suspect in the area.

A deputy made contact with the suspect at 3:15 p.m. and shot the person, who died at the scene.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the incident. Barrett took no questions at a briefing outside a nearby church just after 1 p.m. 19, and said more information would be released by the DCI.

Neither the suspect nor the deputy’s identity was released. The person shot and killed will be identified by the medical examiner in Denmark after the family is notified, Barrett said.

This incident comes two days after an explosion at a nearby duplex and after an armed robbery in the area, although it was unclear if either incident is connected. On Sunday, Barrett declined to answer a question about whether the armed robbery was connected to Sunday’s shooting.

Roberta Rusch, who lives a block away from where police were stationed, called the incident “disturbing.”

It is also the second time this month that a sheriff’s deputy has shot and killed someone.
