Man in custody after Taylor County manhunt; deputy shot

by

WESTBORO, Wis. (WSAU) - A Sunday night incident led to a manhunt in near Westboro. 

The manhunt started at about 7:30 p.m. near the intersection of Highways 13 and 102 north of Medford. Traffic in that area was detoured while law enforcement tactical teams searched the area for the armed suspect. A man was taken into custody a few hours later.

There are reports that a sheriffs deputy was shot during the incident. He was airlifted from the scene. His name and condition are not known.

It's unclear what spared the incident. The shooting suspect was taken into custody after a three-hour search. He's now being held in the Lincoln County jail awaiting formal charges.

The man’s name and further details about the incident are expected to be released Monday.
