Weston Shooting Suspect in Custody

15 Oct News

A St. Paul man is in custody in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old woman at a Wausau-area apartment complex over the weekend.

The Everest Metro Police Department identifies the victim as 20-year-old Lee Xiong of the village of Weston. Police were called to the Weston apartment complex just after 8 pm Saturday after reports of a gunshot. Xiong was found dead at the scene.

The 21-year-old suspect was taken into custody early yesterday in Clark County after he tried to elude officers on foot in a wooded area. Police say he was driving a truck stolen from a Wausau dealership last month, and they believe he was heading back to St. Paul.

Police found two handguns near the scene of the arrest. The suspect is being held in the Marathon County Jail awaiting charges, his name is being withheld until formal charges are filed.
