Police say negotiators tried to get Robert Domine to come out of his home “peaceably” several times but he continually refused.

The press release says after about two hours of making announcements, gas was introduced into the residence. Officials say the Marathon County Bomb squad sent their robot in but it was unable to make it up the stairs. When authorities tried to enter through a garage door, they say two gun shots were heard coming from the residence.
