Former Juneau County Judge John Roemer shot dead at home

Former Juneau County Judge John Roemer shot dead at home



A JUDGE has been shot dead at his home in a possible domestic terror attack, with cops finding a “hit list” of political figures in the suspect’s vehicle.

An armed suspect fired two bullets at John Roemer’s house in New Lisbon, Wisconsin, on Friday, prompting a police response.

A SWAT squad raided the house at 10:17 am, over four hours after the initial report, after officers failed to communicate with the gunman.

It’s been reported that in the suspect’s car was a “hit list” of people to kill, including Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and United States Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

When the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 6:30 a.m. on Friday, informing them of an armed subject and two rounds fired inside a property, it all began.

As soon as the caller had escaped from the house, they dialed 911 from another neighboring residence.

Juneau County Special Tactics and Response Team entered Roemer’s home at approximately 10:17 a.m after unsuccessful negotiations with the individual in the house.

Roemer’s son, according to dispatch records, may have been a bystander who witnessed the horrific event.

Police located a 56-year-old guy with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the basement of the building. His condition is grave, Attorney General Josh Kaul said.

The individual was brought to a medical facility by law enforcement and given life-saving procedures.

At the scene, authorities discovered a weapon.

Those in the legal system have been informed, according to Kaul.

According to Kaul, authorities are looking into the possibility that this incident was connected to a number of court proceedings.

As both a homicide and a suspected case of domestic terrorism, the inquiry is being addressed.

The Sauk County Sheriff’s Office, Mauston Police Department, Elroy Police Department, Wisconsin State Crime Lab, Wisconsin State Patrol, DOJ’s Office of Crime Victim Services, and the FBI are all involved in this investigation, which is being led by the DCI.
