KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — 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. Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. David Wright says the suspect is facing a charge of first-degree intentional homicide.
