A man killed after he was found in the home of a Portage County sheriff’s detective in Plover has been identified as 30-year-old Charles Jameson of Stevens Point.
Plover Police say detective Anthony Gischia returned home with another person early Saturday, when the intruder confronted them. Jameson was then shot-and-killed during a scuffle.
Officials say the intruder knew Gischia and his companion, but have not said who fired the fatal shot. The state Justice Department is still investigating the incident. The state was brought in under a new law signed less than a month ago, which requires officer-involved deaths to be probed by an outside agency.
The Plover death was among two during the weekend in which state criminal agents were called to investigate. The other one happened early Sunday, when Madison Police shot a 26-year-old woman who was armed and reportedly refused to comply with orders from police.
