FBI searching for suspect following alleged violent crimes

A Wisconsin drag racing festival ended up being a chaotic scene that has resulted in a massive FBI search. Three violent crimes supposedly took place when an unnamed person showed up at the festival and started shooting people. Authorities believe the people shot were directly targeted by the gunman.

They also said the three shooting victims are known as gang affiliates in the area. None of the three survived in the incident. The person said to have fired the gun reportedly fled the scene in a black motor vehicle. Police say there were many witnesses to the shootings and that the search is on to locate the person who may have been responsible for the deaths.

Two of the men who were shot were 30 years old; the other was a 26-year-old. The FBI has offered a reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspect. The reward is listed at $25,000.

When federal authorities are involved, it usually doesn't take long to come up with a list of possible suspects in situations like this one. Although the person allegedly seen leaving the Wisconsin festival with a gun has not yet been located, it is likely he may face various charges for violent crimes if police find probable cause against him once they learn his whereabouts. Some people reach out for support even before criminal charges are filed when police question them about a particular incident or ask other potentially incriminating questions that they may choose not to answer without legal representation.
