According to the Kenosha County Jail Inmate Search, Michael William Lorberter, 63 of Kenosha, is being held for multiple criminal counts. All charges allegedly stemmed from an incident caught on camera on Sheridan road near La Fogata Grill. He is likely to appear tomorrow or Thursday at 1pm in front of commissioner Loren Keating. According to Kenosha Police:
Shortly after 8:00 PM on Monday, October 12, 2020, Kenosha Police responded to the area of Sheridan Road and 7th Avenue for a reported incident that involved an intentional crash and a shot being fired.
Officers obtained investigative information and immediately focused a concentrated effort on locating the suspect vehicle, which was found shortly after 10:00 PM in the City of Kenosha.
Information was developed that the suspect was a 63 year old male, Kenosha resident. The suspect was believed to be inside the home where the suspect vehicle was located; however, attempts made by police to speak to the suspect were unsuccessful.
Kenosha County’s Tactical Response Team was requested and responded to the scene. After approximately 3 hours of patience and negotiation, the suspect exited the home and was taken into custody.
The suspect is not being named at this point and charges including, but not limited to 1st Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety and 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety will be referred to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office.
No one was injured as a result of the crash or subsequent shooting.
