Wisconsin Man Dies in Fight with Ex-Wife's Boyfriend

The death of a Wisconsin man who broke into his ex-wife's house in Washington state is under investigation.

Shawn Koula of Coon Valley died after being shot in the head and knee.

Authorities aren't sure whether Koula was shot by his ex-wife's boyfriend in a struggle, or if he shot himself.

The boyfriend was also wounded.

He's hospitalized in stable condition.

Police say the handgun recovered at the scene on Saturday night belonged to Koula.

His former wife and three children fled during the struggle and were not harmed.

Koula's divorce was finalized just days before the shooting.
