KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - The man who died after being shot with a stun gun in Kaukauna has been identified.
According to the Outagamie County Coroner's office, 50-year-old Gregory V. Kralovetz was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Kaukauna police say it all started just after 5 a.m. Saturday in the 200 block of West Wisconsin Avenue when they responded to a report of someone yelling for help.
Upon arrival, cops found Kralovetz naked and running on the Lawe Street bridge. Officers talked to Kralovetz, who was sweating profusely, hysterical and talking about being covered in snakes and being dead.
Police called in an ambulance thinking he may have overdosed on drugs.
When the ambulance arrived, police say Kralovetz became agitated and ran from the scene. Officers wanted to restrain him because he was in the roadway and near the Fox River.
When they couldn’t control him, they shot him with a stun gun. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton.
The investigation was turned over to Appleton police, who found evidence of recent drug use at Kralovetz’s apartment. They plan to test the evidence to find out what kind of drugs and how much was being used.
An autopsy was performed Monday in Madison. Final results are dependent on toxicology results and microscopic testing.
