Marinette County officials say 35-year-old Jesse Cole Shuping of Portsmouth, Virginia had been in the Marinette area for about six weeks and spent some time at a local shelter. They say he recently befriended a local person who allowed him to stay at her home.

Sheriff's officials said earlier there was an incident involving the armed man at a Marinette motel early Thursday. They found the suspect driving away from a residence in the Town of Peshtigo and followed. Sheriff Jerry Sauve says the man exited his vehicle along Highway 64 with his gun and was shot after placing "the officers in danger."

The two Marinette officers and two sheriff's deputies involved in the incident were not injured.
