Wisconsin couple shot by man posing as deputy
WILSON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wilson man and woman were shot by a man who invaded their home posing as a sheriff's deputy.
St. Croix County Sheriff's Chief Deputy John Shilts says the man entered the home of Tom and Maria Erickson about 11 p.m. Saturday demanding money and drugs.
He was wearing a T-shirt that said "Sheriff," a baseball cap and his face was covered. Shilts says he had a rifle, and forced the couple to the ground while pretending to call for backup.
