GREEN BAY - Authorities released more details about the fatal shooting in Kewaunee County.

38-year-old Luis Cardona pulled 40-year-old Babette Caraballo into his vehicle as she was arriving to work at Hansen Foods. Cardona's vehicle was later located by law enforcement and a swat team was called in.

Sheriff Matt Joski said Cardona shot Caraballo, and then a deputy fatally shot Cardona.

Caraballo is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. Her CEO says they're praying for her.

"Very dedicated, very reliable individual, cares about her job," Caraballo's boss Michael Fechter told the media. "For us as an organization we are certainly wishing and praying for a safe return. That's first and foremost out of anything else."

Cardona was jailed back in October for taking Caraballo from her place of employment. He was later released on bond under the condition to have no contact with her.
The division of criminal investigation is looking into Tuesday's shooting.

Sheriff's officials say a man who abducted his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint in Green Bay has been killed by law enforcement in Kewaunee County after he shot the woman.

Sheriff Matt Joski says 38-year-old Luis Cardona was fatally shot by authorities Tuesday after he shot his ex-girlfriend, Babette Caraballo, near an ATV park in Kewaunee County. She has been rushed to a Green Bay hospital. Her condition was not immediately known.

WLUK-TV reports officials say Cardona pulled Caraballo into his vehicle as she was arriving for work shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday at Hansen's Frozen Foods in Green Bay.

Cardona's vehicle was later located by law enforcement in Kewaunee County through a cellphone inside the vehicle. A SWAT team was called to the scene.

Joski says the state Department of Justice is investigating.

WISCONSIN - Coronavirus cases are on the rise globally as well -- further stressing the global supply chain for personal protective equipment. Newswatch 12 spoke with Senator Tammy Baldwin on Wednesday. She called the lack of federal response to COVID-19 inexcusable.

"I think about how different things would've been today if in the earliest days President Trump had used the something called the Defense Production Act," said Baldwin.

Senator Baldwin argues this would've made sure all the personal protection equipment we needed would have been produced. She says different hospitals and health care facilities have been competing over the same equipment.
