MERRILL, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have identified all four officers involved in the fatal shooting of an Eagle River man.

The Lincoln County sheriff says Deputies Brian Kingsley and Randy Ruleau are two of the officers placed on administrative leave following the shooting of 50-year-old Scot Minard last Tuesday. Langlade County Sheriff William Greening says Deputy Thomas Connelly, who has worked for the department for six months, was another of the officers.

Authorities say Minard fired shots at Antigo Officer Joseph Husnick, but missed after Husnick pulled him over for having the wrong license plate. Minard then sped away and officers chased him from Langlade to Lincoln County. An hour-long standoff ended when Minard fired at officers near Merrill and was killed.

Lincoln County Sheriff Jeff Jaeger says the four officers fired at Minard.
