LADYSMITH, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have a suspect in custody in the fatal shooting of a western Wisconsin sheriff's deputy.
Rusk County Sheriff Jeff Wallace says the man surrendered Sunday. Formal charges are pending against the man.
Authorities have identified the deputy killed Saturday evening near Ladysmith as 33-year-old Deputy Dan Glaze. Officials had said the deputy was shot while looking into a suspicious vehicle.
Wallace says Glaze had served in law enforcement for seven years including 1 1/2 years at the Rusk County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff has said the deputy responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle and told dispatch that it was in a field. Dispatch lost contact, and when backup arrived a short time later, the deputy had been fatally shot.
