WATERTOWN, WI (WTAQ) - A 29-year-old man is under arrest for allegedly killing a man and wounding another with a Samurai sword in an apartment above a tavern in Watertown.
Police said it happened late Thursday afternoon. A 27-year-old man suffered multiple stab wounds and died later at a Watertown hospital. A 24-year-old was treated at the hospital and later released with a hand injury -- and he was the one who called 911.
Police confronted the suspect in a stairwell leading to the building's second floor -- and the alleged attacker refused to surrender at first. A police tactical team was then called, along with a police negotiator who convinced the man to give up.
He was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on possible charges of first-degree intentional homicide and reckless injury. No names were released as of mid-morning.
