ADAMS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee man died Wednesday night, after he shot himself in an incident in which he also wounded an Adams County sheriff’s deputy.
55-year-old Thomas Costigan of West Allis died Wednesday night from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Authorities have not released the condition of the injured deputy, who was identified as Todd Johnson.
West Allis Police said Costigan was reported missing on Tuesday night – and he might have been with his wife, whom he was ordered to stay away from as part of a restraining order.
Authorities tracked the two to a home in the town of Big Flats, about 15 miles south of Wisconsin Rapids. When officers went there, Costigan reportedly fired several shots at them – and he wounded Johnson before shooting himself.
Adams County Sheriff Sam Wollin said the deputies did not return the fire.
