On Thursday, October 21st, 2021, at about 11:16 am KSD deputies were dispatched to the Benson Corners gas station (19942-75th Street) located at the corner of STH 50 at US 45 in an attempt to locate a stolen vehicle that was involved in a homicide out of Chicago.  

Deputies located the vehicle and attempted to make contact with the operator and sole occupant of the vehicle.  A high-risk traffic stop was conducted, and the suspect fled from the vehicle.  A KSD K9 was on the scene and was deployed.  While attempting to apprehend the suspect, our K9 was shot by the suspect.  KSD deputies shot the suspect and immediately rendered first aid and he was transported to an area hospital for his injuries.  

The identity of the male white suspect is not being released at this time.

We have requested Racine County Sheriff’s Department to investigate the incident.  The shooting investigation is active and ongoing.  Please avoid the area.
