WAUSAUKEE, Wis. (AP) - The man who was fatally shot after encountering a bank robbery suspect in Marinette County is remembered as a beloved member of his community.

Authorities say 59-year-old Thomas Christ was shot along a road not far from some farmland he owned near Wausaukee. Investigators say the man suspected of robbing a bank in Wausaukee Tuesday afternoon is likely responsible for Christ’s death. That suspect, Steven Snyder, later was killed along with state Trooper Trevor Casper in an exchange of gunfire in Fond du Lac.

Christ’s longtime friends tell the Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1BmfI8V ) that he was a peaceful man who was married, had two adult sons and recently became a grandparent. They say he drove a logging truck for Wild Rivers Transport.
