3-20-23 oshkosh cop shoots, wounds suspect who drove at officers

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a police officer in northeastern Wisconsin shot and wounded a suspect early Friday as that person drove a vehicle toward officers. The Wisconsin Department of Justice and the Oshkosh Police Department say Oshkosh officers were responding to a “threats complaint” about 1:30 a.m. when the suspect was spotted in a nearby vehicle. Authorities say the suspect drove the vehicle at the police officers, one of whom fired their weapon, injuring the suspect. That person was hospitalized but no information of the person’s condition was immediately released. Oshkosh police Capt. Rebecca Kaiser said the vehicle got close enough to the officers that they “felt threatened for their life.”
