Naked Man Shot, Killed Near Johnson Creek Outlet Mall

A naked man was shot last Tuesday by law enforcement officers outside of the Johnson Creek Outlet Mall in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin, according to the Waukesha County sheriff.

The deadly encounter took place after the man carjacked a motorist at the Meadowbrook park and ride lot in Waukesha, said Waukesha County Sheriff Eric Severson.  According to Severson, the man removed his clothes and fled in the stolen vehicle.

The vehicle was then spotted travelling westbound on I-94 by a City of Delafield police officer.  The driver exited at Highway 83 before making a U-turn and getting back on I-94.

The pursuit ended in Jefferson County, after police used stop-sticks to deflate the vehicle's tires.

The carjacker waved a gun at police officers as the vehicle slowed down, prior to entering an Arby's restaurant parking lot in Johnson creek, said Severson.

The naked man exited the vehicle and began running toward the restaurant, and according to at least one witness turned around and fired at the officers.

"He tried to get into the restaurant ... had a gun in hand. I'm assuming the door was locked," said witness Brian Knapp. "He turned around and came back out, fired a shot and then the officers shot him."

He was shot by a Delafield police officer and a Waukesha County sheriff's deputy after ignoring the officers' orders to stop, said Severson.

The shooting will be investigated by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
