UPDATE: One person dead after shooting in Plover


One person is dead after an early morning shooting in Plover on Saturday, according to the Plover Police Chief.

He says says at about 1 a.m., officers responded to a report of a break-in and shooting at a home on the corner of Cedar Drive and Easlan Drive.

Neighbors tell Newsline 9, the owner of the home works for Portage County Sheriff's Department.

They say the area was full of activity throughout the day.

"I saw police officers everywhere and there was a huge fire engine right outside," said Elaina Shuh, a neighbor.

"It was kind of scary, we didn't really know what was going on," said Dorothy Rozak, a neighbor.

Investigators stayed on scene into the evening.

"We had people running all over the lawns and they were bringing stuff in and out and eventually the coroner got here and all the police officers were everywhere," said Shuh.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene including the Plover Police Department, the Division of Criminal Investigation and State Patrol.

Neighbors say they also saw investigators search a red car parked nearby the home.

"The officers and crime investigators, they went in there and they cleaned out everything in there," said Rozak.

The Plover Police Chief says this was an isolated incident and that the residents in the area aren't in any danger. But some neighbors are still concerned.

"To have crime within a thousand yards of your residence, it's not very comforting," said Paul Klasinski, a neighbor.

The chief says the Department of Justice, the Wisconsin Crime Lab and State Patrol's Technical Reconstruction Unit are investigating the case.
