2 dead in pair of shootings in Marinette County

Posted:

TOWN OF POUND (WKOW) – Two men are dead in a pair of fatal shootings in Marinette County Monday night.

The sheriff's office says a man reported an armed man in his family cabin around 10:00 p.m. 

Around the same time, the sheriff's office received another call about a car that had crashed into a home in the same area.  Deputies found the driver, who was in his late 20s, had been shot.  He later died at a Green Bay hospital.

The investigation led deputies to another location nearby where they found a man with a shotgun and handgun inside a vehicle.  Sheriff Jerome Sauve says the man, believed to be in his 70s, refused to surrender and eventually pointed a gun at deputies.  In response, the deputies opened fire and killed the suspect.

Authorities say the names have not been released.
