Press Release


Re: Gunshot Victim

On November 25, 2015 at 11:07am the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office received a call reporting a gunshot victim on Gurno Lake Road in the Township of Hayward. Sawyer County Deputies and LCO Tribal Police Officers responded immediately to the scene. The adult male victim was deceased at the scene, apparently from a gunshot wound. A few minutes later, an adult male suspect turned himself in to the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office and is in custody.

The names of the victim and the suspect are not being released at this time. This incident remains under investigation by the LCO Tribal Police Department, Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office, and the Wisconsin Department of Justice/Division of Criminal Investigation.

Chief Deputy Craig Faulstich
