More details are emerging into a deadly officer involved shooting.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office said two deputies were trying to arrest Roger Helgerson Jr.,45, of Millville Township on multiple warrants, Friday morning.

Authorities said Helgerson was armed. According to neighbors, officers themselves had tactical rifles.

The sheriff's office said a deputy shot, wounding Helgerson.

Investigators said deputies tried to give first aid, but he died on scene. 

The involved deputy, however was not hurt. His name has yet to be  released. 

The deputy is on paid leave while the Wisconsin DCI and sheriff's office continue to investigate. 

An autopsy was done over the weekend. Once the results are processed, the information will be released.
