On October 6, 2021 members of the Racine Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit  assisted with a US Marshal task force operation at 3722 Clairmont Street within the city of  Racine. Members of this federal task were at this location to serve an arrest warrant on an  individual wanted for charges including aggravated assault and weapons violations. While  attempting contact at the door of 3722 Clairmont Street, officers were fired upon from within the  residence and a federal agent was struck by the gunfire. At that time the officers pulled back and  there was no return fire from law enforcement personnel. 

Negotiations take place after which, several children and adults exited the residence. Following  negotiations, law enforcement personnel did make entry to 3722 Clairmont Street and discovered  the male suspect deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

At this time the federal agent is in stable condition.
