Road Rage Shooting Leaves One Injured And One Dead

A road rage incident that started in Winnebago County has left a man there with gun shot injuries and a man dead in Washington County.

At about 1:45 PM, Wednesday, September 6, 2023, the Winneconne Police were dispatched to the 300 block of east Main Street for a man with gunshot wounds. According to police, the man had confronted the shooter a few blocks away at Lake Winneconne Park after a road rage incident. During that confrontation, the man was shot several times.

The suspect fled the scene and the victim drove to a local dentist office two blocks away to seek help for his wounds.

Information in the incident led police to believe that the suspect may be in the West Bend area so around 5:15, a request was sent to the West Bend Police Department to
check an address for a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle used in the shooting.

The suspect in the incident was spotted at the residence and as an officer attempted to make contact with the man, he fled. Several officers pursued the man and a short
distance later he crashed his vehicle on State Highway 45 near Park Avenue.

The man was located deceased in the vehicle, though it was not released if he was dead from injuries related to the crash or some other manner.

The incident continues to be investigated by law enforcement in both Winnebago and Washington Counties.
