Douglas K. Uhde

Wisconsin judge shooting suspect Douglas Uhde was sentenced by Roemer

The Wisconsin Department of Justice on Saturday identified Douglas K. Uhde, 56, as the man suspected of killing retired Judge John Roemer on Friday.

Roemer had sentenced Uhde to six years of prison on a burglary charge in 2005, court records show.

According to a release, law enforcement entered Roemer’s home around 10:17 a.m. Friday after “failed attempts” to negotiate with Uhde.

Roemer, 68, was dead. Uhde was found in the basement with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was transported to a hospital and was in critical condition as of Saturday.

Law enforcement recovered a firearm at the scene.

Anyone with information about Uhde should contact the Wisconsin Department of Justice at (608) 266-1221.
