WESTON, Wis. (WSAU) - Police in Clark County say they've got a man in custody in connection with a Saturday night shooting in Weston.
Officers were called around 8pm to the 5100 block of Aspen Street to an apartment complex for a report of a gunshot fired. When they arrived, they found 20-year-old Lee Xiong dead in the apartment. Police now have a 21-year-old suspect from St Paul in custody, but are not releasing his name.
Everest Metro police sergeant Mark Klemm says the suspect was spotted leaving the scene by a witness who knew him. "We've got reason to believe he was heading back to St. Paul." Reports say the suspect fled the scene and headed to Clark County. Clark County deputies found him on a dead end road and arrested him without incident. The suspect had two handguns with him at the time of his arrest, and was driving a truck stolen from a Wausau car dealership last month. Klemm says the suspect was talking with police overnight.
The name of the suspect will not be released until formal charges are filed. The case is still under investigation.
