HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) - Police apprehended a suspect after responding to a burglary in progress at Gibbons Auto Service early Monday morning in Holmen.
Amy Zielke, 37, was treated for single gun shot wound and is being held at the La Crosse County Jail on felony burglary charges.
The owner of the business, Dave Gibbons, lives upstairs and heard a car pull up outside around 1:30 Monday morning.
He checked his security cameras and saw someone go in through the front door. He checked the cameras again and saw someone going through the desk.
He grabbed his gun, told his wife to call 911, and ran downstairs to confront the person who had a ski mask on and refused to take it off.
He said the suspect then dropped a pry bar and began to move. That's when he said he shot the burglar in the leg.
At that point, the suspect sat down and took off the mask. Gibbons recognized Zielke as a customer.
The case is still under investigation.
