Milwaukee man fatally shot by brother in Dodge County hunting incident

DODGE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 54-year-old Milwaukee man is dead after a hunting incident in Dodge County Tuesday morning.

Authorities say the victim, identified as Kao Xiong, was shot by his 61-year-old brother. 

The two were out hunting squirrels with a third party near Mud Lake Road in Reeseville when the incident occurred, between 7:30 and 8 a.m. 

The 61-year-old told authorities he saw movement and shot the victim.

"We always want to treat it as a worst-possible incident, and we can back it off later," said Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt. "Any time we have a death investigation we're going to treat it as it potentially could be a homicide. I'm not saying it is, because it very well may not be."

The DNR is investigating.
