3/7/2017 - Standoff Results In Shots Fired In Portage County - Click here to print this information

Lots of activity in Portage County late Monday, as a standoff with an armed suspect resulted in at least one shot being fired. According to a news release from the sheriff, the incident started in the 100 block of Main Street in Junction City just after 3:00 p.m. Deputies found one man had retreated into a home, firing shots as he fled the deputies surrounding the house. Several neighbors were evacuated and the Portage County Special Response Team was called in. Just before 6:00 last night, 80-year-old Henry Kaminski came out of the house and was taken into custody. One neighbor told WSAW TV that Kaminski had caused problems before, but was typically a pretty quiet person.
