Osseo (WQOW) - A man wanted on a probation violation killed himself as police approached him Tuesday night.

Eau County Sheriff’s deputies, Osseo police officers, and Wisconsin State Patrol Troopers approached a male subject who was wanted on a probation violation. As police approached the subject, the man fired a gun at himself. He later died of the self-inflicted gunshot wound at a nearby hospital.
