Two Wisconsin police officers were shot early Friday morning while responding to a report of a hit-and-run accident.

The officers are being treated for non life-threatening injuries. 

The suspect has been identified as Nathanael Benton, who is allegedly also wanted in Fargo, N.D., in connection to a shooting.

He is described as a white male wearing a flat-brim hat, hoodie and khaki pants. Benton purportedly opened fire on the officers during the incident, outside of a Holiday Inn in Waukesha County. 

One of the officers is from the city of Delafield and the other from the village of Hartland, according to Fox News.
