LA CROSE, WI – After the peaceful apprehension of Joseph Jakubowski, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“I want to thank all of the law enforcement officers who have worked tirelessly over the past several days to bring about a peaceful resolution to this situation.
