Robbery Suspect Arrested After Shooting

TOWN OF MENASHA, Wis. (AP) -- An armed robbery suspect is behind bars in Winnebago County following a police shooting outside a gas station.

Town of Menasha police say the man robbed a PDW store Sunday afternoon, then was confronted about a block away in the parking lot of a Citgo station. Authorities say an officer fired two shots at the 24-year-old man, who had a handgun. No one was injured.

WLUK-TV says it's the second officer-involved shooting in the Town of Menasha in the last month. Winnebago County investigators ruled an officer was justified when he shot and killed 66-year-old Wilson Lutz, who had pointed a shotgun at police.
