Frank Fabiano, Jr.

Deputy Frank Fabiano was shot during a vehicle stop in the town of Somers.

Deputy Fabiano had stopped a vehicle near the University of Wisconsin-Parkside campus in a subdivision just south of Highway E and east of Highway 31 at about 11:37 pm, when he was shot. A University of Wisconsin-Parkside police officer who was serving as a backup officer reported the shooting and returned fire. Deputy Fabiano was transported to St. Catherine's Hospital by the Somers fire department where he died from his injuries about 5:00 am.

After the shooting, the suspect fled into the woods and after an intense three-hour manhunt, he was captured about 15 blocks from the scene of the shooting at an apartment complex. The suspect was an illegal immigrant. The suspect was later convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment with no chance of parole.

Deputy Fabiano had served with the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department for 18 years. He had also served his country as a US Marine. He is survived by his wife, daughter, parents, brother, and sister.

Frank...its been 12 years since you have been gone and it still seems like yesterday. We remember you with the greatest affection and have been watching Angelina grow into a
wonderful adult. She has gone to Australia twice and is now going to Maine for the summer
to be a counselor. She loves to travel, but I know you are watching out for her and know that
she has gone places. Its so quiet with out you here and wanted you to know that you are
missed every day.
