CF man faces various weapons violations


Chippewa Falls (Press Release) - On October 3, 2012 at approximately 10:07 a.m. the Chippewa Falls Police Department received a request from the Eau Claire Police Department to check the welfare of Daniel J. Heyde. Officers checked locations where Heyde was known to have been in the past.

At approximately 10:46 a.m. officers checked 618½ Allen Street and were able to determine that a person was inside the apartment, but would not come to the door. Contact was made with the current tenant for that address and they confirmed that Heyde was likely in the apartment and that there was a firearm in the apartment.

Officers secured the area, evacuated neighbors and the downstairs tenant and attempted to make contact with Heyde. Eventually contact was made with Heyde through a third party and Heyde indicated he did have a shotgun.

Officers continued to negotiate with Heyde and Heyde eventually indicated he would come out of the apartment.

Shortly after that a gunshot was heard from within the apartment. Within a minute or two of the shot being fired Heyde exited the apartment carrying the shotgun.

Heyde subsequently dropped the shotgun when ordered to do so by police and was taken into custody. Heyde was the only person in the apartment at the time of the incident and investigating officers did find a hole in a wall from the discharge of a firearm.

No one was injured in the incident.

Police will be asking the District Attorney's Office to file charges against Heyde for various weapon violations.
