Goodlet is a one year veteran of the police department and Juoni is a 16 year veteran. 

According to the Ashland Police Department, the officers were dispatched to the 400 block of West Main Street at approximately 7:31 p.m. on October 23 for a man walking with a gun in his waistband and possibly suicidal.

The officers located the 28-year-old man and observed a handgun in his waistband.  The police department said the officers ordered the subject "Don't go for the gun, raise your hands, show me your hands."  Then the man began pulling the gun from his waistband and officers fired their weapons, striking the man two times. 

The police department said the man was taken to a hospital where he was recovering from his injuries.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation was called to investigate the incident.  They recovered a semi-automatic replica handgun at the scene. 

The DCI has completed their investigation of the incident and has provided a report to the District Attorney to review for a determination regarding the legality of the officers' actions.  

The suspects name is being withheld while the report is under review. 

The officers involved had been placed on a two-week paid administrative leave while a state agency conducted the investigation of the incident.

Paid administrative leave is standard procedure during investigation of officer-involved shootings.
