MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police are searching for a man suspected of stabbing a Capitol Police officer in a state office building.
Stephanie Marquis is a spokeswoman for the state Department of Administration, which oversees the Capitol Police. She says in a statement two Capitol officers responded to what she called a duress alarm in the state office building in Milwaukee early Wednesday afternoon. The officers were confronted by a man who stabbed one of them in the neck before fleeing.
Marquis says the injured officer was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
Marquis says the officers were not responding to a hostage situation but didn't offer any further information. She said Milwaukee police have taken the lead in the investigation. A spokesman for that agency didn't immediately return messages.
