Jan. 9, 2013

A 22-year-veteran of the Waukesha Sheriff's Department has been placed on administrative leave in the wake of a shooting in the Town of Delafield on Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Michael Doud, 52, was among deputies who responded to a home at N2 W31808 Twin Oaks Drive at about 1:50 p.m. Tuesday, in response to a 911 call. The caller stated that a 31-year-old man, Justin Ebbe, was suicidal and in possession of a shotgun. There were two other family members in the home at the time. The family members left the residence without incident, and were uninjured, according to the Sheriff's Department.

Ebbe failed to put down the weapon after deputies repeatedly ordered him to do so, according to the Sheriff's Department. Doud shot and injured Ebbe, disarming him. Ebbe was taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital, where he remains this afternoon. The department isn't releasing any additional information. Ebbe's condition was unavailable before press time.
