Wisconsin Officer Wounded in Gun Grab Attack, Suspect Dead

May 30, 2016  | 

A 23-year-old Appleton, WI, man who was a suspect in two retail thefts attacked an Appleton police officer early Saturday, taking her handgun and shooting her and a Good Samaritan before killing himself on the city's east side, Police Chief Todd Thomas said.

The suspect shot himself in the head, according to multiple people who witnessed the event, and died at the scene, Thomas said.

Police declined to release the names of the suspect, the officer or the man who stopped to help her, to give their families time to cope with the incident, the Post-Crescent reports. Thomas said the officer was shot in the hip and the man was shot in the upper chest. They underwent surgery at a local hospital and are recovering.
