HOBART, Wis. (WFRV) – The suspect in Wednesday’s domestic situation in Hobart has died, according to Hobart Lawrence Police Department.
On Thursday morning, the department announced that the suspect, identified as 40-year-old Jeffery Patnode, died in the hospital after he was found by authorities with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday.
Police explain the incident started on Wednesday morning when they responded to a home located at the 700 block Centerline Drive for a report of a domestic disturbance.
The report had come from Patnode’s 25-year-old girlfriend who told police that Patnode was threatening to kill her.
The woman added that Patnode had fired a round off using his handgun, but fortunately, she was able to leave the residence with minor injuries from the disturbance.
Authorities say during their response, they attempted to contact Patnode, to no avail.
The situation then became a largescale law enforcement incident that was resolved later in the day when Patnode was eventually located in a wooded area with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Patnode was taken to the hospital where he later was pronounced dead.
