Green Bay Police Arrest Two Juveniles Reference Taylor County Shooting, Pursuit, and Stolen Vehicles Case
Green Bay Police Department Case #13-211267
On Wednesday August 28th, 2013 at approximately 10:52 PM the Green Bay Police Department received a message from Taylor County reference an attempt to locate two suspects who had been involved in the theft of two vehicles and guns in that area. Additionally they advised that the subjects discharged a firearm or firearms at a responding police officer. The information from Taylor County indicated that the subjects might be travelling to the Green Bay area and requested assistance from the Green Bay Police Department in locating these individuals.
A Green Bay Police Officer located a vehicle similar to the one described as the stolen vehicle at an address in the 600 block of S. Maple, which was an address that was associated with one of the subjects. Additional units responded to that scene to contain the situation and attempt to locate the subjects. While responding to that area, officers developed additional information that the subjects might also be at another address in the 200 block of S. Chestnut Street. Another group of officers responded to that scene to contain the situation at that location. Officers arriving observed activity outside of the Chestnut Street residence and also observed another vehicle that closely matched the description of the stolen vehicle from Taylor County.
Officers were able to take two male juveniles into custody near the residence in the 200 block of S. Chestnut Street, and recovered two firearms believed to be associated with the incident. In addition, the stolen vehicle was also recovered there. No officers were injured in this incident and it does not appear that there is any additional danger to the public at this time. Because the violations occurred in Taylor, Clark, and Marathon counties, those jurisdictions will be requesting any charges for the juvenile males, not the Green Bay Police Department. Because this matter is still under investigation, no additional information will be released at this time.
