Three people were killed and three others wounded in a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early Sunday morning, the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office said. Police said Sunday evening that a person of interest is in custody.

Two people died at the bar and another died after hopping into a car leaving the scene, the sheriff's office said. Officials said they did not believe it was a random act but rather a targeted situation. The three people who died all knew each other, the sheriff's office said.

On Sunday evening, police said there were six confirmed victims — three deceased men and three men who were hospitalized with gunshot wounds — and one more possible unknown gunshot victim.

Authorities said they believed handguns were used, and more than one was recovered at the scene.

The shooting took place around 1 a.m. at Somers House Tavern, a bar popular with Carthage College students, according to CBS Chicago. The college was put on lockdown early Sunday, but it has since been lifted.
