Kenosha County sheriff provides update on Great Lakes Dragaway investigation

1 Killed 2 Wounded in Shooting at Wisconsin Dragstrip

The sheriff says at least two of the men were from Aurora, Illinois.

The three were shot to death Sunday evening, August 13, 2017 at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove. He was reportedly seen fleeing on foot through a crowd and may have left the Dragaway in a black vehicle, Beth said.

Beth told Milwaukee-based TMJ4 that the shootings were believe to be the result of rival gangs from Milwaukee and Chicago coming to a head, and that they have caused problems at the Union Grove facility in the past.

The third victim died en route to an area hospital, Beth said.

The Kenosha County Sheriff said three men were shot by another man at point blank range near a food vendor. According to a police spokesman on the scene, they only have a vague description of the shooter, a black male with short hair and cut-off jeans in his 30s. According to a local report, the police had also not confirmed the type of weapon used in the attack. Beth said he didn't know if the shooting was gang-related though there were "issues a year ago (at Larry's Fun Fest), but nothing to this degree".

Great Lakes Dragaway is a quarter-mile drag strip that opened in 1955 in the Kenosha County Town of Paris.

According to a Fox6 Now report, the shooting took place around 8 p.m. EDT at an event called Larry's Fun Fest.
