TWIN LAKES, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of killing two men after a bar fight in Twin Lakes is facing numerous charges, including intentional homicide, first-degree reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police said they were called to the Beach Bar, 402 S. Lake St., at about 2 a.m. for a shooting outside the tavern.

When officers arrived, they found 28-year-old Richard Samuel dead in the parking lot. He had multiple gunshot wounds. A second man, 31-year-old Kenneth Samuel III, also had multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Burlington Hospital where he died.

The two victims were brothers, police said.

The suspect, a Trevor man, was taken into custody hours later on Interstate 94 near Tomah. His identity has not been released as of Sunday night.

Police were told by witnesses that there was an altercation between the suspect and the victims before the shooting, which happened at bar closing time.

The suspect has not been formally charged.

Twins Lakes is located in Kenosha County, on the Wisconsin border with Illinois.
