A 27-year-old man from the Black River Falls area died in an officer-involved shooting Saturday morning.

Jackson County Sheriff Duane Waldera said the incident started when a deputy investigated a call about disorderly conduct and a possible restraining order violation.

When the deputy arrived, he took a statement from the caller and then went to take a statement from the subject of the complaint. Waldera said a car chase ensued after the deputy arrived when the subject of the complaint drove to the residence of the female complainant.

“The vehicle definitely was going to the residence,” Waldera said. ”It ended at the residence, right in the front driveway.”

Waldera said that when the subject of the complaint arrived, he made a threat, which prompted the gun fire.
