The Sheboygan County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call around 3:30 AM about a shooting in the 400 block of North 10th Street in Oostburg.

When deputies and EMS arrived on scene they located two deceased men inside a home. Both men had been shot.

Those who live nearby say there's always a lot of traffic coming in and out of the home where two men were shot.

One neighbor believes people frequently meet at the home to play video games.  

"My wife woke me up this morning and thought something was going on next door. She described hearing some noises which ultimately I believe were the gunshots," said a neighbor. "Apparently when she looked out the window she saw some kids coming out of the house, and I know she said something about that he was arguing with his buddy."

Officials said that a person of interest has been located and taken into custody.

The Sheboygan County District Attorney's Office is working with the Sheriff's Office to review the case for future charges.

The Sheriff's Office said that there is no danger to the public.

The investigation is ongoing and no other information is available at this time.
