BELLEVILLE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A man was shot and killed by two Dane County sheriff's deputies whom he stabbed after a domestic disturbance. It happened early yesterday afternoon at a home near Belleville in the town of Primrose. Media reports said Lieutenant Brian Hayes underwent surgery, and would spend several days at U-W Hospital. Deputy Roger Finch stayed at the hospital for overnight observation. Both were stabbed in their lower legs.

Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney said the officers were attacked with a sharp instrument when they entered the house and went up a staircase. The officers apparently fired shots right after that. The attacker was suspected of severely beating two elderly relatives -- a man and a wife -- and he reportedly lived with them. Both officers have spent more than 20 years on the Dane County sheriff's department.

The shooting was the second by law enforcement in Wisconsin over the past two days. Milwaukee officials said an officer killed a mentally ill man who attacked him on Wednesday in a downtown park. Outside investigators are in the process of looking into both shootings -- the first ones under a new state law in which law enforcement agencies can no longer investigate their own officers who are suspected of killing those in custody.
