TWIN LAKES — Police have identified the two victims killed in a Friday shooting in Twin Lakes.

Richard Samuel, 28, and Kenneth Samuel III, 31, both of Twin Lakes, died Friday after a shooting near the Beach Bar, 402 S. Lake St.

Police were called to the Kenosha County site at about 2 a.m. for a shooting that occurred outdoors and behind the establishment, according to a news release. The officers found Richard Samuel dead in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds.

Kenneth Samuel III was found in the same location, also with gunshot wounds. He was taken to Memorial Hospital of Burlington, where he later died, the release states.

A 25-year-old suspect fled the scene before police arrived, according to the release. He was later located by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and Wisconsin State Patrol near Tomah and taken into custody.

Witnesses at the scene told police there was an altercation between the victims and suspect before the shooting occurred. The incident appears to be isolated, the release states.
