Uhde has John Roemer, a retired judge, in critical condition after carrying out a “targeted” attack on him. The attack was carried out on Roemer.
The man believed to have shot and killed a retired judge in Wisconsin before allegedly turning the gun on himself has been recognized by the state’s Department of Justice. Reports indicate that he also left behind a “kill list” in which he included the names of Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Senator Mitch McConnell among the targets. At this time, the individual is being held without the possibility of a bond being posted.
In a statement that was released on Saturday by the Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, the alleged shooter, Douglas K. Uhde, was given a name and given the age of 56 years old. According to the most up-to-date information that is currently available on his condition, Mr. Uhde is still considered to be in a critical state.
The Juneau County Sheriff’s officers received a call reporting an armed suspect and two shots fired inside the residence of retired Judge John Roemer, 68 years old, located in New Lisbon, Wisconsin. The defendant is accused of entering the premises at the same time that the officers received the call.
The information provided by the Department of Justice in Wisconsin indicated that the caller had successfully evaded capture on the property and made contact with law enforcement officials from a dwelling situated in the immediate area. After unsuccessful attempts to communicate with Uhde, the Juneau County Special Tactics and Response Team entered the residence at approximately 10:17 a.m. and discovered Roemer dead on the interior of the home.
