(Black River Falls, WI) -- The Wisconsin Department of Justice is investigating the fatal officer-involved shooting which happened last Friday in Clark County.

Kelly Gene Abbott was killed in a gunfight with authorities after a high-speed chase. Investigators say Abbott exchanged shots with Clark County Deputy Sheriff Nicholas Klemm and Loyal Police Officer Jacob Schar. Neither officer was hit. Authorities were chasing Abbott because he had a felony arrest warrant in his name. He reportedly had a weapon in his hand when he stepped out of his vehicle after its tires had been flattened by stop sticks.
