One Hurt in Boscobel Police Standoff

BOSCOBEL, WI (Ben Caxton) — A police standoff in Boscobel has resulted in the arrest of a rural Eastman man and a woman injured by gunfire. Boscobel Police Department received a report of a male subject armed with a shotgun who had barricaded himself and a female inside a residence at 1306 Elm Street.
