DA: Waukesha Co. Sheriff's deputy justified in shooting man with gun

Waukesha County Sheriff Department

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - The Waukesha County district attorney has ruled a sheriff’s deputy who wounded a man when he refused to drop a shotgun acted justifiably.

It was ruled a case of self-defense.

Deputy Michael Dowd is a 22-year veteran of the sheriff’s department.

He shot 31 year old Justin Ebbe January 8th after deputies had been sent to an address in the Town of Delafield.

A relative told authorities Ebbe was suicidal and had fired the weapon inside the home.

Dowd shot him when he pointed the gun at the relative and refused orders to drop it.
