Fond du Lac, WI – On Tuesday, Wisconsin State Trooper Trevor Casper, 21, of Kiel was fatally shot after getting into a gun fight with a suspected bank robber, Steven Timothy Snyder of Michigan. According to court records, Snyder was arrested and convicted in 1996 for disorderly conduct after a group of skinheads, which he was a member off got into an altercation with Blacks and Hispanics in Fond du Lac.
Casper noticed a vehicle used in the Bank of Florence robbery in the Village of Wausaukee in Marinette County and pursued Snyder.
Trooper Casper and the suspect engaged in a gun battle near the Pick ‘N Save, which ended with both getting fatally shot. Casper had graduated as a trooper on December 19, 2014.
