An Everest (WI) Metro police officer and three others are dead following a shooting spree Wednesday afternoon.

Everest Metro Police Chief Wally Sparks confirmed the deaths at a press conference shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday. The shooter is in police custody, Sparks said. He declined to release names of those involved pending notification of family members.

The shootings began as part of a “domestic situation,” according to a press release from the Rothschild Police Department. The first report of a disturbance came at 12:27 p.m. when Rothschild officers were called to the Marathon Savings Bank at 1133 E. Grand Ave. Officers found two people shot there, and the suspect gone.

Wausau Police Capt. Todd Baeten said more shots were reported around 1:10 p.m. from the law firm Tlusty, Kennedy and Dirks in Schofield. A third call came at 1:30 p.m. from the Aspen Street Apartments complex in Weston, where the shooting suspect stayed for the remainder of the afternoon. Baeten said officers communicated with him from where he was inside the complex.

It is unclear at what point and location the officer was shot, the Wausau Daily Herald reports.
