On Dec. 24 at 11:56 p.m., the Crawford County Dispatch Center received a 911 call from Cheryl L. Lippitt, 50, Industrial Drive in the village of Wauzeka. Lippitt said she had just shot her live-in boyfriend Harold P. Schuh, 50, and he was inside their residence on Industrial Drive.  

Deputies responded and found Schuh laying on the living room floor. Schuh was conscious and told deputies that he had been shot in the arm and stomach. Deputies found a .45 caliber handgun in the residence which is suspected to be the weapon Lippitt used to shoot Schuh. Schuh was transported to the Boscobel Hospital and transferred to UW Hospital in Madison where he is in stable condition.  

Lippitt, who appeared to be extremely intoxicated, told deputies that earlier that evening she and Schuh had gotten into an argument and began to hit each other and break items in the house. Lippitt said that during the fight she became afraid for her safety so she shot Schuh and then called police.

Lippitt had what appeared to be bruising, scrapes and cuts on her face and arms, and the residence appeared as though there was some type of altercation with items broken and thrown around the home. 

Lippitt was arrested and transported to the Crawford County Jail where she is being held on the initial charges of intoxicated use of a firearm, endangering safety with the use of a dangerous weapon and domestic disorderly conduct.

The incident remains under investigation and additional charges may be filed.

Assisting at the scene were the Wauzeka First Responders, Boscobel EMS and Boscobel Police Department.
