Officials have identified the man who died following an officer-involved shooting in the Town of Amberg last Friday. The Wisconsin Department of Justice says 74- year-old Duane Rich of Wausaukee was shot and killed by Marinette County Sheriff’s Deputy Jesse Parr after Rich exited a vehicle brandishing a firearm when officers responded to a call for a domestic incident November 27th. Although lifesaving measures were performed on Rich, he died at the hospital from his injuries. Deputy Parr has served 5 years in law enforcement and has been placed on administrative leave per department policy until the DOJ’s Department of Criminal Investigation completes their report and turns it over to the Marinette County District Attorney.
