A second officer was also hospitalized for a head and neck injury he suffered during the incident. He has also been discharged and “will be off for a few days for observation.”

Police say the suspect is being treated for self-inflicted wounds. Charges will be filed with the District Attorney’s Office “as soon as possible,” according to authorities.

Officials add that they believe the suspect acted alone and he was related to both victims.

“I am proud of our officers for relentlessly pursuing this double homicide suspect and taking him into custody,” says Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith. “Again our officers put themselves in harm’s way to protect our community. These officers demonstrated courage while taking a violent, knife-wielding, double homicide suspect safely into custody.”
