Bruce Allen Williams

Deputy Bruce Williams was shot and killed after responding to a domestic violence call.

When Deputy Williams arrived at the call on South Street, the suspect opened fire with a high-powered rifle, striking Deputy Williams in the neck and upper shoulder area above his vest. The suspect then locked himself in his apartment.

Deputies fired tear gas and flash-bangs into the apartment to distract the suspect and entered the apartment. They found the suspect dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Williams had served with the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office for 14 years, and is survived by his wife, three daughters, parents, and three siblings.

I’m thankful for Bruce, and the impact he had on his younger brother, Deputy Mike Williams, who was my FTO. 15 years after Bruce’s murder, our deputies still remember that night. You were an impact player, Bruce, and Green County is a better place because of your service and love of the community, but you are sorely missed by so many.
