- Authorities say a manhunt for a suspect in a fatal shooting in West Allis ended with a chase and shootout on a Wisconsin highway.
West Allis police say a 42-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday morning at an apartment complex. Several hours later, a drive-by shooting was reported on Interstate 90/94 near DeForest. That incident led to traffic closures.
Authorities began following a suspect vehicle and used road spikes to disable it.
According to a statement from the Dane County Sheriff's Office, the driver, a 20-year-old from West Allis, got out of the vehicle and moved toward officers with a handgun. When he refused to drop it, two deputies shot him. He was taken to a hospital, and two passengers in the car are in custody.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice says it's believed the suspect in the drive-by is responsible for the homicide.
