Armed suspect identified in Lincoln County officer-involved shooting, DCI investigating if shooting justified
MERRILL - On a seemingly quiet Tuesday morning in southwestern Lincoln County, Arlen Raduechel recalls a very different scene from the night before.

"[The road was] blocked off here, solid police cars all the way down the road and totally blocked off here," Raduechel said of County Highway FF.  "The neighbor called and we had no idea what was going on."
