Default WM Racine, WI Officer shot to death tavern robbery; negro sought


Funeral set for Racine Officer John Hetland as reward to find suspect nearly doubles
Updated 5:14 p.m. CT June 22, 2019

The Racine community continues to show support for Officer John Hetland, who was fatally shot Tuesday while trying to stop an armed robbery at a tavern.

A GoFundMe page set up to benefit Hetland's two children has raised $27,000 as of Saturday. And the reward posted to find his killer has nearly doubled in the last two days to $64,500.

Hetland was shot by a masked gunman at Teezers Bar & Grill, where he'd apparently gone for a bite with a friend. Police said Hetland jumped over the bar to try to stop the robbery and was fatally shot in the struggle with the suspect.

As the community reacts to Hetland’s death, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office is still searching for the shooting suspect.

They describe him as a lean black man between 5-feet-8 to 5-feet-10 inches tall and in his 20s.
Surveillance footage during the incident shows the suspect wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and a black mask — either a black bandanna or neoprene motorcycle mask — obscuring part of his face.
