White shooting suspect captured alive after ambushing Wisconsin police

Nathanael Benton also had an attempted murder warrant out of North Dakota.



It should have been a routine traffic stop. On early Friday morning, a police officer from Delafield, Wisconsin, and another from Hartland, Wisconsin, stopped a suspect vehicle after a hit-and-run accident. Nathanael Benton, 23, ambushed both officers who were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Benton, who is white, was then taken into custody alive and without incident in a nearby field. Police later discovered that he was wanted on an attempted murder warrant in Noth Dakota.

Fargo police put out an APB for Benton on November 2, 2020, after shooting a man in the head in Fargo. That person is also expected to recover.

A search of Benton’s social media footprint turned up racist ideation at the time of him completing home school. His social media footprint got quieter in the last few years.
