Deputy Michael Sundberg fired on Cindy Shepard as she advanced on two other deputies, a shotgun in her hands, “in the firing position,” according to a report by Flaherty.

Sundberg fired one rifle round, striking Shepard in the torso and killing her around 10:30 p.m., Flaherty found.

Shepard, “over the course of approximately 40 minutes,” fired at least two rounds from a handgun and repeatedly threatened to fire on deputies while ignoring pleas to drop her firearms, according to Flaherty.

Double Shooting – Killed – Manfred Eisenheim (Pound, WI)


POUND, WI (WTAQ) – Marinette County authorities have named the two shooting victims from a bizarre incident in the Town of Pound Monday night.

The sheriff’s department has also released their timeline of events.

At 10:09 p.m., a 911 call was made by 26-year-old Tyler S. Walk of Marinette from his aunt and uncle’s cabin on North 5th Road in the Town of Pound. Walk told authorities he had seen a suspicious armed man at the cabin two miles east of Coleman.

At 10:16 p.m., a second 911 call was made regarding Walk crashing his truck into a nearby house. When deputies arrived, they discovered Walk had suffered a gunshot wound. He was taken to a Marinette hospital, then to a Green Bay hospital where he died.

Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve says the man who shot walk was 76-year-old Manfred M. Eisenheim of North 5th Road in Pound. Sauve says they’ve learned that Eisenheim suffered from mental illness.

“We’ve been told by neighbors and family members that there have some issues and I’ll leave it at that,” says Sauve. “I’m not a mental health professional; I’m just going by what I’m told.”

Walk was able to provide a description of Eisenheim and his vehicle.

Neighbors in the area were evacuated at 11:13 p.m.

At 12:50 a.m., Eisenheim was located inside his SUV nearby. That’s when deputies spotted guns inside that vehicle. Five minutes later, Eisenheim shot the gun and pistol observed in vehicle.

By 1 a.m., the doors to Eisenheim’s vehicle were locked. Then at 1:13 a.m. on Tuesday morning July 2nd, three deputies opened fire and killed Eisenheim following repeated attempts to get him to drop his weapon.
