MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) — A Manitowoc police officer has shot and killed a man after a confrontation. The Manitowoc Police Department says the officer and Manitowoc firefighters responded to a fire alarm early Sunday. While investigating, the officer confronted a man armed with a blunt instrument. Police say the officer fired his gun, and the suspect died at the scene. The officer was placed on paid administrative leave. The Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation will investigate the shooting.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee police say four people were shot and wounded this weekend over an incident that happened about a month ago. The shooting happened Saturday afternoon. Police say none of the victims’ injuries are life-threatening. The victims were a 21-year-old man, a 23-year-old man, a 35-year-old man and a 64-year-old woman. All were taken to hospitals. Police say the shooting apparently stemmed from an incident that happened between two groups about a month ago. The investigation continues.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin is on pace for losing the most dairy farms this year since 2013. The Wisconsin Public Radio reports that the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says Wisconsin lost 47 dairy farms in August alone. The department’s figures show there were fewer than 8,400 licensed dairy producers at the beginning of this month, 429 fewer than at the start of the year. Farmers say the decline isn’t surprising given the long-term trend toward industry consolidation.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee leaders hope economic development will be spurred by a new commercial center built at the location of a bank that was burned down two years ago during unrest over the fatal police shooting of a black man. Wisconsin Public Radio reports that the $4 million Sherman Phoenix is scheduled to open in November. More than 20 business owners will go into the space. The center will offer the small business owners resources and a support system.
