Man reportedly seen near Whitewater school with weapon taken into custody

Intersection of W. Walworth Avenue and S. Elizabeth Street

At the news conference, Janesville Police Chief David Moore said Jakubowski has had previous run-ins with law enforcement and has served time in prison, the anti-government rhetoric in the manifesto "is a new element for all of us", WISN-TV reported. The FBI is now offering $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

The Armageddon Gun Shop, on the 2100 block of West US 14, was robbed of rifles and handguns at 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, a release from Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said. They say Jakubowski is a gun-theft suspect who is armed and risky. The burglary and vehicle arson appear to be connected, authorities said.

Several schools in the Janesville area canceled classes for Friday.

"When you look at the document that he wrote, it's really a long laundry list of injustices he believes that the government and society and the upper class have put forth onto the rest of the citizens", Spoden said, declining to offer details.

"I can tell you that we don't know where Mr. Jakubowski is", Moore said. If the lockdown continues, the school will notify parents about a dismissal plan via the district's messenger system.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation and all local law enforcement agencies are working to locate Jakubowksi.

London's Metropolitan Police say a 31-year-old Romanian tourist who plunged into the Thames from Westminster Bridge during an attack on Britain's Houses of Parliament has died, more than two weeks later.

JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) - The Rock County Sheriff's Office says Joseph Jakubowski is still at large and has not been taken into custody as of Friday morning.

Schools that are closed Friday include Janesville public schools and four parochial schools in the city; UW-Rock County and Blackhawk Technical College, both in Janesville; the Parkview School District in Orfordville and Milton public schools.

Officials say they have 150 local, state, and federal officials working the case.
