Sheriff: Man in deputies attack was schizophrenic

Posted:
Authorities say the man who was shot and killed after stabbing two Dane County sheriff's deputies had schizophrenia.
   Sheriff Dave Mahoney said Friday the man was wearing a bullet-resistant vest when he attacked the deputies at a town of Primrose home where he was living with his mother and stepfather.
   Officers fired bean bags and then used stun guns, pepper spray and batons before Deputy James Kelley shot the man.
   The man was not identified. But the Wisconsin State Journal reports the sheriff says officers had numerous contacts with him in the past.
   Deputy Roger Finch was released from UW Hospital Friday. Lt. Brian Hayes will remain hospitalized for a few more days.
