Four people were shot — one fatally — Thursday night in a southeastern Wisconsin attack that has sent authorities hunting for a possible car involved.

At 10:35 p.m., Kenosha County sheriff’s officers responded to a shooting  in the 31500 block of 71st Street in the town of Wheatland, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. Two people inside the home had gunshot wounds.

Shortly after, officers were also called to the BP gas station in Paddock Lake, where two more people had been shot, the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s department did not say if they were investigating the two shooting as related.

In total, four people were wounded, one of whom later died, police said. The other three were taken to hospitals.

As of Friday morning, detectives were still searching for a black four-door car seen at the gas station with two of the wounded.
