Scott Walker, the Governor of the State of Wisconsin sadly reports the death of Trooper Trevor Casper of the Wisconsin State Patrol.
Trooper Casper, 21, was shot and killed during a confrontation with an individual that was believed to have robbed the Hometown bank in Wausaukee, Wisconsin. It was also learned that “this individual,” had also confronted a 60 year old male citizen in Wausaukee a short time after the robbery. The robbery suspect shot and killed the citizen stealing his vehicle and leaving the robbery suspect’s vehicle running with the citizen laying in the street.
Trooper Casper located the deceased citizen’s stolen vehicle being driven by the bank robbery suspect in Fond du Lac and was following the vehicle through the area. The suspect stopped, exited the vehicle and confronted Trooper Casper. An exchange of gunfire between the two erupted and the shooting left both the suspect and Trooper Casper deceased at the scene.
The investigation is being conducted by the Fond du Lac Police Department and Wisconsin Department of Justice-Criminal Investigation Division.
Trooper Casper was a graduate of the 60th Recruit Class of the Wisconsin State Patrol Academy that competed their training on December 18, 2014 in Madison. He was assigned to the Fond du Lac area and served the Wisconsin State Patrol for only three months. Trooper Casper is survived by his parents and siblings.
Trooper Trevor Casper-gone, but never forgotten. EOW: Tuesday, March 24, 2015.
