KENOSHA COUNTY -- Two men have been arrested in relation to a quadruple shooting that happened this past Thursday that killed one and injured three in Kenosha County. 

On Thursday, just before 10:30 p.m., Kenosha Sheriff’s Deputies were sent to the 31500 block of 71st Street in the Town of Wheatland for a report of a shooting that happened inside a home.  Sheriff Deputies say there were two people injured inside the home.

“Well, I know [crime is] everywhere, but when it comes close to your house you gotta think it could have been at my house. I got a feeling it’s drugs,” Terry Janczak, a neighbor, said.  
                                                                                                                                                       Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth also linked the murder to drugs —he said this was a targeted attacked with no threat to the general public.                                                                                       

“We believe that drugs played a role in it. Whether it was a bad deal or [whatever] it was, I don’t have that answer yet,” Sheriff David Beth said.  

Shortly after, deputies also were called to the BP gas station in Paddock Lake for a report of two other people with gunshot wounds.

The surviving victims were transported to area hospitals.

As of 12:45 a.m. Friday, police were looking for a black four-door car, which was last seen at the BP gas station with the two injured people. 

The vehicle has since been impounded for the investigation. 

The Wheatland Constable, Wisconsin State Patrol, Twin Lakes Police Department and Kenosha Police Department are also assisting the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office with this investigation.
