MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul today released the following statement regarding the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) led investigation into the officer-involved shooting in Kenosha on Sunday, August 23, 2020.


“The Wisconsin Department of Justice is vigorously and thoroughly investigating yesterday’s officer-involved shooting in Kenosha. As with all investigations we conduct, we will unwaveringly pursue justice in this case.


“I hope for a full recovery for the man fighting for his life. He and his family are in my thoughts, as is the entire Kenosha community.
