OSHKOSH — A police officer in northeastern Wisconsin shot and wounded a suspect early Friday as that person drove a vehicle toward officers who were conducting an investigation, authorities said.

Oshkosh police officers were responding to a “threats complaint” about 1:30 a.m. — part of an ongoing investigation they had been assigned to earlier in their shift — when the suspect was spotted in a nearby vehicle, the Wisconsin Department of Justice and Oshkosh police said.

Certain demographics are more likely to be pulled over than others, and the consequences for drivers who are subject to a traffic stop vary significantly.
