On Thursday, Brown allegedly fled deputies after they initiated a traffic stop at the Benson Corners gas station near Highway 50 and US 45 in Bristol. Brown drove a stolen vehicle involved in a Chicago homicide at the time. 

As Brown fled on foot, the department’s K9, Riggs, chased after him. Brown then pulled out a gun and shot Riggs. After Brown shot Riggs, deputies returned fire ⏤ hitting Brown. Deputies gave first aid at the scene, and emergency personnel took Brown to an area hospital. 

Both Brown and Riggs stable

Brown is currently in stable condition, according to a release from the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department. He remains hospitalized.

K9 Riggs is also in stable condition. According to a KCSD social media post, Brown shot Riggs in the forehead, leading the K9 to be rushed into surgery. However, the department expects Riggs to make a full recovery.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth expressed gratitude to the community for its support following news breaking of Riggs’ injury.

Riggs is a hero and potentially saved the lives of our deputies and the public,” Beth said.

Racine County Sheriff’s Department investigating

As a Kenosha County deputy is involved, the Racine County Sheriff’s Department has stepped in to investigate the deputy-involved shooting on Kenosha County’s behalf. 

Charges for Mr. Brown will be forthcoming once the investigation is completed and submitted to the District Attorney’s office, KCSD’s release states.
