Hunters Shot

Five dead, three injured after hunter denied access to Wisconsin tree stand

Police in Wisconsin say a man accused of shooting eight hunters was "chasing after them and killing them."

Authorities say the deadly violence near Meteor in Sawyer County erupted after a dispute over a tree stand. They say two hunters who confronted the suspect were shot as were those who responded to calls for help.

Five people were killed and three were wounded. Police say the suspect was "sniping" at the victims with an assault-style rifle. The suspect was later arrested after getting lost in the woods and running out of bullets. He's identified as a Minnesota man.
