5 dead in Chippewa County shootings

From the Chippewa County Sheriff's Dept:

On July 28th 2019 the Chippewa County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call requesting EMS and Law Enforcement in regard to a shooting incident at a residence in the Village of Lake Hallie.  Upon Law Enforcements arrival we discovered two deceased, a adult male and female. Two other adults at the residence suffered gun shot injuries. The two adults were transported to a area Hospital and at this time are being treated for their injuries.  

At around 2:30am Chippewa County Deputies went to the residence of one of the deceased in the Town of Lafayette to make contact with family members. Upon entry of the residence Law Enforcement discovered three other gun shot victims (all deceased) of an apparent homicide.

The shooter/gunman is suspected in both homicide investigations. The suspected shooter is also one of the deceased. 

At this time residents in the Village of Lake Hallie and Chippewa County are not in harms way. These investigations will be followed up with more details as the investigations continue.
