TAYCHEEDAH, Wis. (AP) - A man involved in a domestic dispute took his own life when deputies found him hiding in the trunk of a vehicle they had stopped in Fond du Lac County, according to sheriff’s officials.
Deputies responded to a report of an argument between a man and a woman Sunday that involved a firearm. As they were interviewing the woman at her home, deputies made a traffic stop west of Mount Calvary and found the man in the trunk armed with a gun.
Deputies tried to negotiate with the man after establishing a perimeter, but he later sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Sheriff’s officials say no deputies fired their weapons.
The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office will investigate because of the sensitive nature of the incident, authorities said.
