Wisconsin State Trooper Trevor Casper was shot and killed Tuesday after an altercation with a man believed to be the suspect in a bank robbery that occurred earlier in the day.

Authorities told WITI-TV that the suspect was eventually killed in Fond du Lac after exchanging gunfire with the trooper. Mariette County Sheriff's Office is also investigating whether the bank robbery suspect was involved in another shooting after the robbery in which a man believed to be in his 60s was killed.

The sheriff's office reported that a male entered the State Bank of Florence in Wausaukee about 2 p.m. Tuesday and fired one shot before robbing the bank of an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect got away by stealing the vehicle of a bank employee.

Authorities told WITI-TV that they found the elderly shooting victim along Jermac Road, east of Wausaukee, about 30 minutes later near a running pickup truck. The sheriff's office reported that the vehicle the suspect took from the bank was later found in the same area.

Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve told the Fond du Lac Reporter that the elderly man's vehicle was found where the suspect and Casper exchanged gunfire. Authorities did not identify the other shooting victims.

A Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman confirmed Casper's death during a news conference Tuesday evening. Law enforcement officers expressed their condolences online.
