Department of Justice Investigating Neenah Officer Involved Shooting
Neenah Police Department requested the Department of Justice-Division of Criminal Investigation handle the investigation into an officer-involved shooting in the city of Neenah on December 5, 2015.
There has been conflicting information circulating in the community regarding the events leading up to the officer-involved shooting, according to the Department of Justice.
“We are choosing to release very limited facts to prevent any further confusion or misinformation,” said the Department of Justice in a release.
The investigation thus far has shown that the deceased, Michael Funk, was armed when fired upon by police. However, DOJ has much work ahead of us and a prosecutor will make a final determination on whether there should be charges in the case.
