PLOVER, WI (WTAQ) - State and local authorities continue to investigate a weekend shooting death at the home of an off-duty Portage County sheriff's detective.  

No new information was released Sunday about what happened early Saturday in Plover, south of Stevens Point.  

Officials said an intruder entered Detective Anthony Gischia's home, and a shooting death followed -- the details of which have not been disclosed. The victim's name was not released.

Gischia was not seriously hurt. There was no word on any possible arrests.  

The state Justice Department is looking into the matter, and a Plover police official expects that agency to release more information Monday.  

The sheriff's department plans to start its own administrative investigation this week into the incident. Chief Deputy Dan Kontos wrote on Facebook that such investigations take time -- and it would be improper to say more about the incident right now.
