More details are emerging from the officer involved shooting in St. Croix Falls Aug. 8.
Monday, Barron County Sheriff’s Office released the names involved as part of their investigation of the shooting portion of the case.
St. Croix Falls police responded to a 911 call at the Dalles House Motel at 9:44 p.m., according to the news release. The caller told 911 operators an adult female in a room needed help because her boyfriend has a knife.
Officers arrived within two minutes of the call and knocked on the motel room door identifying themselves as police officers. Terry Treleven, 45, Eau Claire, opened the door with a knife in his hand, holding it in an aggressive manner. Treleven was ordered several times to drop the knife by both officers.
