Patient prisoner shot by Walworth County deputy during altercation

by

ELKHORN, WI (WTAQ) - A gun was fired at a hospital in Elkhorn Monday night, during an altercation between a Walworth County sheriff’s deputy and a patient who was a prisoner.

Adam Beeson, spokesman for Aurora Medical Center, would not give any information on the patient’s condition, citing privacy laws.

Walworth County sheriff’s officials told a reporter that the officer’s weapon was discharged at one point.

The department asked investigators from nearby Waukesha County to look into the incident.
