A Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy is hospitalized with a gunshot wound following the execution of a search warrant in the Town of Mukwa south of New London. Sheriff Brad Hardel says the deputy was hit during an exchange of gunfire with the 62 year old man who lives at the Manske Road residence. The deputy received a non-life threatening injury. Hardel says the man was wanted on charges of domestic abuse aggravated battery. Law enforcement has had prior contacts with the man, prompting authorities to use SWAT teams from Waupaca, Outagamie, and Wood Counties to execute the warrant. The man is also being held on attempted homicide charges for shooting at officers. He is expected in court early next week.
