      Details are sketchy as two men are dead following shootings in the Pound, Wisconsin area Monday night.

      According to the Marinette County Sheriff's Department, deputies responded to a call of a suspicious person who was armed at a family cabin off of North 5th Road. Shortly after that call, there was a report of a vehicle that crashed into a residence in the same area.

      Upon arrival to the second scene, deputies and rescue personnel removed an injured male from the crash who was later determined to be suffering from a gun shot wound. The male victim, who was in his late twenties, was taken to Bay Area Medical Center in Marinette and later transported to a Green Bay Hospital where he died.

      The investigation led officers to a third location where they located a male subject believed to be in his late seventies, armed with a shotgun and handgun inside of a vehicle. The subject refused multiple commands from officers to surrender.

      Eventually the suspect put officers in jeopardy by pointing a weapon in their direction. Officers fired and the male suspect died at the scene. No officers were injured, and police believe there is no public danger.

      The Marinette County Sheriff's Department was assisted on the scene by the Marinette City Police, Wisconsin Department of Justice, Wisconsin State Crime Lab, Coleman Rescue, Bay Area Medical Center Paramedics, Coleman Fire and Coroner George Smith.

      The investigation is ongoing, and additional information will be released later.
