Shooting Suspect Arrested

Posted at 4:58 AM

A Saint Paul Minnesota man was arrested early yesterday for the murder of a 20-year-old woman in Weston, near Wausau.

Police were called to an apartment just after eight on Saturday night, where Lee Xiong (zhawn) died from a gunshot wound. Authorities said they caught the 21-year-old suspect on foot, as he tried to elude officers in a wooded area near Abbotsford. Officers from Marathon and Clark counties and K-9 teams searched the area, and arrested the man in Clark County – close to 40 miles west of where the shooting took place.

Officials said the man had driven a truck stolen from a Wausau area dealership on September 11th. He remains in the Marathon County Jail, pending charges. Authorities expect to say more at a news conference this morning.
