SARATOGA, Wis. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting incident in Wood County that left one person dead and another under guard at a central Wisconsin hospital.

Authorities say they were called to a home in Saratoga about 10 p.m. Monday. They found a woman who had been fatally shot and a male who was wounded. Sheriff Thomas Reichert says the male remains hospitalized.

Daily Tribune Media reports (https://wrtnews.co/1J1PDBR ) that the incident apparently involved Juneau County authorities warning Wood County authorities of a suicidal teen who was headed to Saratoga.

But authorities were withholding key details of what happened, including names and ages and what led to the shootings. Reichert said more information might be released Wednesday morning.

But investigators say those involved knew each other and there’s no threat to the community.
