BIG FALTS - A missing person case from a Milwaukee suburb led to the shooting that injured an Adams County Deputy last night. What started as a missing person case in Milwaukee, ended with a suicide, and an Adams County deputy shot.
It happened last night, when West Allis police say a 52-year-old woman went missing.
Earlier in the day, police investigated a domestic violence incident between the woman and her husband, 55-year-old Thomas Costigan.
Police tracked the couple to property they own in Adams County.
Costigan fired at police when they went into the house.
43-year-old Deputy Todd Johnson was shot.
"At which time the subject presented a handgun, fired several rounds in the direction of the officers. The Adams County Deputy was struck by the gunfire and sustained injury," says an Adams County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson.
Police say the officers did not fire back, but Costigan shot himself.
Both Costigan and the deputy were taken by helicopter to a trauma center.
Costigan was pronounced dead earlier this evening.
RHINELANDER - Hodag Park received a sizable donation Thursday morning. New sand was dropped off to help the Rhinelander Parks Department grow the beach back to its original shape.
There were thousands of pounds of sand dropped off and spread out. There was a high need for this because of all the rain we've had this season.
"It was getting in pretty poor shape and washing out more and more, but this year especially, it just seems like we've lost a lot of sand. So now we're going to shape it up nicely and hopefully it'll last the year," said Rhinelander Parks Director, Jeremy Biolo.
All of that sand was donated and delivered by a company in Rhinelander.
"Musson Brothers, Inc. donated all the sand and they said we could help ourselves to as much as we want, which is unbelievable because this beach really needed some work," said Biolo. "Every little bit like that helps our community out and it improves the community. It's awesome that the Musson Brothers stepped up and would do that for us."
