Eau Claire cop fatally shoots man; police say suspect shot at them”

Eau Claire police report that a man is dead after an officer-involved shooting.

Police chief Jerry Staniszewski said Sunday that the department received a request the night before to check the welfare of the man, who made "homicidal and suicidal" comments to an acquaintance.

"Officers tried to talk to the subject but he refused to cooperate, he then retreated to his residence", says Staniszewski.

That's when the Eau Claire Crisis Negotiations Team and Tactical Response Team were called in.

The Eau Claire Fire Department said the fire was out well before 8:30 p.m., but crews stayed on scene for a few hours to make sure it stayed out.

Authorities say when they arrived, two sides of the two-story house were on fire and flames had spread to several locations.

"Because of the actions of that officer, no officers or citizens were injured during this incident", says Staniszewski. The La Crosse Police Department is conducting interviews and handling evidence.

The man who was shot and killed is a 59-year-old Eau Claire resident.

The officer who fired the deadly shot was identified as a sergeant with eight years of service.

The deceased man's name will be released after family has been notified.
