SURING, Wis. (AP) — The individual fatally shot by Oconto County sheriff's deputies last weekend was a 26-year-old Suring man, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

The DOJ's Division of Criminal Investigation is reviewing the shooting Sunday night at a residence in the Suring area.

The deputies responded to the home following reports that a person with felony warrants was there. Deputies say Jacob Bubb had a gun and was shot by the deputies during the encounter.

Court records show Bubb had a warrant for substantial battery-use of a dangerous weapon and five other charges.

The two officers who fired their guns, Deputy Kevin Christensen and Sgt. Ben Schindel, are on administrative duty, the DCI said. No one else was injured.
