JEFFERSON COUNTY (WKOW) - A person-of-interest wanted by authorities in connection to two Jefferson County deaths, gunfire at a sheriff's deputy and a potential arson fire is in line to receive several thousand dollars per his father's recently filed will.

But that will entitles one of Kevin P. Anderson's siblings far more money.

State Justice Department officials late Wednesday identified the 61-year old Anderson of Fort Atkinson as a person-of-interest and cautioned people not to approach him if spotted, as he's considered dangerous.

Authorities say a burglary call brought a Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy Tuesday to a home at N1941 County Highway A. Officials say the deputy discovered two people dead on a driveway, and then was the target of gun fire from the property's home. Authorities say the home then burst into flames and smoke.

Jefferson County records show Anderson is one of the sons of the property's 90-year old owner, who died June 5. The owner's will was filed in Jefferson County Court June 11. The will stipulates Anderson and three siblings receive equal portions of a $50,000 segment of the father's property, or $12,500.

But the will also allots a full $50,000 to Anderson's brother, with one of Anderson's sisters to administer that money for his benefit.

County Register of Deeds records show the property's assessed value as $190,100.

The attorney in the probate case, Michael Rumpf, has yet to respond to a call and email from 27 News for comment on the expected division of property and assets.

Authorities have not identified the two victims, nor the Sheriff's deputy who exchanged gunfire with a suspect.

Jefferson County Court records show Anderson served seven months in jail and five years probation on a 1992 conviction on felony charges of reckless endangerment. Records show a passenger in Anderson's truck fired gun shots within inches of three ice fishermen after the fishermen left a body of water.
