JANESVILLE — Authorities say two victims found with gunshot wounds near Interstate 39/90 in Janesville were local women.

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s office conducted the autopsies and said Tuesday both women died of gunshot wounds.

The Rock County medical examiner identified them as Brittany Mcadory, 27, and Seairaha Winchester, 30, both of Janesville.

The women were found alive near the interstate early Monday. They died of their injuries at a Janesville hospital. Officials said four shell casings were found in the area where they were found.

No one was in custody as of early Monday afternoon, Janesville Police Chief Dave Moore said.

Moore told reporters the victims were ages 27 and 30, and that both had children.

“The public is not in danger. This was a targeted thing,” Kleisner said.

Officials said four shell casings were found in the area.

The women were found at about 3 a.m. Monday and were rushed to the hospital.
