Officer Down: Frank Fabiano, Jr.

KENOSHA, Wis. — We now know more about the Kenosha County sheriff's deputy shot and killed during a traffic stop overnight.

Sheriff David Beth says Deputy Frank Fabiano, Junior was shot in the face by a man who was arrested after a three-hour manhunt.

Fabiano was an 18-year veteran of the sheriff's department, was married and had a seven-year-old daughter.

The 48-year-old deputy stopped a van shortly before midnight for a minor violation in the Town of Somers.

Beth says the deputy and suspect got out of their vehicles and Fabiano was shot.

A UW-Parkside officer arrived on the scene as a backup and fired shots at the suspect.

Two helicopters and police dogs helped search for the suspect.

Beth says citizen tips helped authorities pin down the man's location.

He was found hiding behind some parked cars in an apartment complex.
