Authorities find person in Wisconsin hunter's fatal shooting

November 26, 2015

WAUTOMA - Authorities say they've found a person involved in the fatal shooting of a hunter near Redgranite in east-central Wisconsin.

Gregory Welk of Mount Morris was shot just before sunset Monday while he hunted on his land. The 56-year-old was able to call 911 and gave investigators some information before he died at the hospital.

Waushara County Sheriff Jeff Nett says on Tuesday night, wardens from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources found someone involved in the shooting. Nett says authorities are no longer looking for anyone else.

A news outlet reports no more information will be released until the sheriff's department and the DNR finish their investigations.
