KENOSHA — Kenosha police are investigating a fatal shooting at 52nd Street and 19th Avenue Thursday evening.

KPD was specific in a social media post that this was not a police-involved shooting.

KPD initially said they were investigating a shooting in the area of 52nd Street and 19th Avenue just before 7 p.m. Officers closed streets between 22nd Avenue and 18th Avenue to the public.

In a second statement, police confirmed the shooting was a homicide. Suspects fled the scene before officers arrived, police said. 52nd Street remains closed between 22nd and 18th avenues.

On Friday, Kenosha PD said the victim was Hector Rodriguez-Rojas, a 30-year-old Kenosha resident.

"Police worked well into the morning and developed suspect information which led to the arrest of the suspected shooter. That person is in custody and appropriate charges are expected to be referred to the Kenosha County District Attorney. The suspect will not be named until charges have been submitted," according to a statement.
