Names released in fatal Marinette County shootings

Posted:

MARINETTE COUNTY (WKOW) -- The Marinette County Sheriff's office is releasing more information about two fatal shootings there earlier this week.

Authorities say 76-year-old Manfred Eisenheim of Pound shot 26-year-old Tyler Walk of Marinette. Deputies then shot Eisenheim early Tuesday, after tracking him to his home. They say he pointed a gun at them.

The "Marinette Eagle Herald" reports it started at a cabin Monday night, when Walk called police saying someone was parked outside with a gun. Walk went outside to check in his car.

Minutes later, people nearby called police saying a car crashed into their garage. Walk was inside the vehicle and had been shot.

Eventually, investigators ended up at Eisenheim's home.
