Oshkosh Police Identify Officers Involved in Shooting

Oshkosh
Police have identified the two officers involved in a deadly officer-involved
shooting that happened early Monday morning on the city’s south side. The
department says Officers Aaron Achterberg and Kyle Roberts were involved in the
shooting of 28-year-old Isaiah Tucker. Achterberg has been with the department
for nine years, Roberts has been with the department for six years. The officer
who fired their gun during the incident was not identified. Police Chief Dean
Smith said officers were called to a home in the 300 block of Knapp Street at
2:18 am Monday for a report of a man who tried to take items from a woman’s
home.
A second call said the man had returned and now was
trying to take her vehicle. When officers arrived, the car crashed through the
garage door and got stuck in the yard. Smith says as one officer tried to
remove Tucker he accelerated toward the other officer, who opened fire. Tucker
fled in the vehicle and was found hiding in a shed, suffering from gunshot
wounds. Both Achterberg and Roberts were placed on standard administrative
leave. The incident remains under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of
Criminal Investigations.
