Posted: Updated:

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin State Patrol trooper who died in a shootout with a bank robbery suspect was a recent recruit who had just completed academy training in December.

A bulletin from the state patrol to law enforcement agencies statewide identified the trooper in Tuesday night's shootout as 21-year-old Trevor Casper.

The patrol said Casper, of Kiel, Wisconsin, was following a vehicle that matched the description of one driven by a bank robbery suspect earlier in the day in Marinette County.

Casper confronted the man in Fond du Lac and exchanged gunfire. Both were killed.
