Authorities say they have apprehended a person in connection with a shooting at a busy tavern in southeastern Wisconsin early Sunday that left three men dead and three men injured.

The shooting happened at around 12:42 a.m.at the Somers House Tavern in Kenosha, where three people were pronounced dead at the scene.

"We believe our suspect knew who he was targeting", Beth said during a Sunday morning news conference. Authorities assert this was a "targeted and isolated incident". "I want to thank the first responders who reacted quickly and are still working to investigate and find those involved in this senseless tragedy".

The two people who were shot and wounded were taken to area hospitals.

It is not clear exactly why that person was removed, or whether there was one or more shooters, the sheriff said.

Anyone with information related to the shooting is asked to contact the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office at 262-605-5100 or anonymously contact Crimestoppers at 262-656-7333.

Kenosha is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of Milwaukee, not far from the Wisconsin-Illinois border.

"I know that there was a confrontation obviously inside the building and I believe just outside the building there was another confrontation with gunfire".

Wright called it a complex investigation that involves several crime scenes. Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch is charged with homicide and attempted homicide in the August 25 shootings.
