The Richland County Sheriff’s Department has released further information of a physical altercation that involved a knife early Sunday night.
The incident was reported at 6:45 PM on Cribbin Hill Road near address 20393. Richland County received a cellular 911 call asking for Sheriff’s Deputies to respond but due to poor signal, not much information could be obtained. The first responding deputy came across a male subject lying along the roadway who was later identified as Jerome Lux, age 59 of Marshall Township. It was determined Lux had received 2 stab wounds, one to the left chest and one to his neck. The Deputy administered first aid and scene security until other County Deputies, an RCPD Officer and Richland County EMS arrived. Further investigation discovered another male, Thomas Wagner, age 50 also of RC, lying injured in a nearby driveway. Both men were transported to the Richland Hospital with Lux being transferred by MedFlight to UW Hospital in Madison. A condition update on Lux is not known.
The Richland County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the Richland Center Police Department, Richland County EMS, Richland Center Fire and the Richland County District Attorney Office.
The investigation continues.
