SOMERS, WI (WLIP & AP)–A person of interest has been located and charged with homicide in a shooting that left three people dead Sunday morning.

I want to thank the first responders who reacted quickly and are still working to investigate and find those involved in this senseless tragedy…We are thinking of the families and loved ones affected and the entire Kenosha community as they grieve and grapple with yet another tragic incident of gun violence.”
