KENOSHA, WI–Authorities have released the identity of the man arrested in connection to the death of officer John Hetland.
26 year old Dalquavis Ward of Milwaukee was arrested and taken into custody with Hetland’s own handcuffs yesterday. Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth says the suspect was picked up in Milwaukee.
Beth says that a lot of work was done to get to this point.
Hetland was off-duty when he was fatally shot on June 17 when he tried to intervene in an armed robbery at Teezers Bar and Grill. Authorities say Hetland jumped over the bar and confronted a masked, armed man when he was shot. Hundreds of mourners turned out Wednesday to honor Hetland.
