TWO RIVERS (NBC 26) -- The Wisconsin DOJ has identified people involved in a fatal officer-involved shooting on Monday night.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) said the involved officer, Police Officer Dakota Gamez, has been put on paid administrative duty.

Authorities say police conducted a traffic stop Monday night on Washington Street. During the stop, the DOJ said an officer fired his weapon, striking Nash W. Fiske, a person in the vehicle.

The DOJ said firearms were recovered at the scene. Fiske died from his injuries at the hospital. No officers were hurt during the incident.

Officer Gamez has nearly 3 years of service with Two Rivers Police Department, the DOJ said in a news release Friday.

The investigation is continuing and DCI will turn over investigative reports to the Manitowoc County District Attorney when the investigation is finished.
