Shooting in Medford ***UPDATED***


  On Saturday, August 30th at 2:56 P.M., the Taylor County Dispatch Center received a 911 call of shots being fired into a house in the 500 block of South Park Avenue in the City of Medford.  Officers responded to the scene and during  their investigation they received information regarding a suspect and vehicle information.  From witness statements and electronic tracking, law enforcement officers were able to determine the direction of travel of the suspect and eventually located the suspect's vehicle in the ditch of the 35000 block of County Highway M in Chippewa County.

  Saturday night at approximately 6:15 P.M.,  law enforcement officers from the Chippewa County Sheriff's Department, Taylor County Sheriff's Department, Medford Police Department and the Department of Natural Resources arrested 19 year old, Harrison C. Davis of 767 Gibson Street, Medford.  

  Harrison Davis is being referred to the Taylor County District Attorney for 1st degree reckless endangering safety, discharging a firearm in a school zone and discharge of a firearm into a building.

  The shooting incident,  which occured in the 500 block of South Park Avenue in the City of Medford, was within 1000 feet of Holy Rosary Catholic School which is a violation of discharging a firearm in a school zone.  During the shooting students were not in the school but it was later reported there were people setting up for mass within Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

  A Medford High School varsity football game was in progress at the time of the shooting.  As a precaution, the game was suspended, tied 14-14, in the first overtime period and the players, coaching staffs and fans were taking into the Medford Area Senior High School and put on lockdown. Support staff and the radio announcers were put under lock down in the press box.  The lockdown lasted about two hours.  When the all clear signal was given, the game was allowed to resume with Chippewa Falls defeating Medford 22-14 in overtime.

  Harrison Davis remains in custody at the Taylor County Sheriff's Department Jail.

Every Vote Counts! 2014 Primary Election Results


  The Wisconsn Primary Election on Tuesday, August 12th, shows that your vote DOES count.  In the 87th Assembly District Republican Primary, that race is not yet complete because it is so close on the vote count.  On Tuesday night, it appeared as though Michael Bub would win the election by 3 votes.   However, first thing Wednesday morning, August 13th, it was learned that was not the case as 20 votes from Rusk County were switched to the James Edming side due to a preliminary clerical error.     This gave Edming a 17 vote advantage.  K99's Brad Dahlvig reviews the election results and K99's Russ Gowey talks with Rusk County Clerk, Denise Wetzel, to learn what happened in the Rusk County vote count.....
