(AP) — Sheriff’s officials have searched a golf course in Oconto County as they look for a man who exchanged gunfire with a deputy. Oconto County Sheriff Michael Jansen says the search of Pine Acres Golf Course in Abrams Tuesday morning hasn’t turned up anything. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/20RoOI5 ) reports that about 1:30 a.m. a deputy was checking a business in Abrams that had been burglarized recently and encountered a man. Jansen says the deputy asked the man to stop, but he took off running, then turned and fired at the officer. The deputy was not hit and returned fire. Oconto Falls School District officials decided to cancel classes at nearby Abrams Elementary Tuesday because the search for the suspect was ongoing.

Juneau County Sheriff Brent Oleson said in a release, they received the call for the first accident around 3:35pm. The initial investigation revealed the accident occurred when the operator of a motorcycle attempted to turn into a driveway after a group of motorcyclists missed their turn. A 54-year-old motorcyclist, not with the group, struck a 34-year-old motorcyclist who was turning. The 54-year-old was transported to UW Madison with life threatening injuries, while his 51-year-old passenger was transported to Hess Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Sheriff Oleson said they received the call for the second accident around 8pm. The initial investigation revealed a motorcyclist attempted to pass a vehicle and then drifted into the west ditch where the operator lost control. The operator, a 34-year-old Tomah man, was transported to Tomah Memorial Hospital with life threatening injuries. Both accidents remain under investigation.
