Police: Person of interest in shooting that killed 5-year-old in Green Bay arrested in Beloit

BELOIT, Wis. — A 35-year-old man who police say is a person of interest in a shooting that killed a 5-year-old in Green Bay earlier this week was arrested Friday in Beloit.

In a Facebook post, the Beloit Police Department said officers from multiple agencies arrested the man around 4 p.m. near the area of East Grand Avenue and Prospect Avenue near downtown Beloit.

Police in Green Bay say the man is believed to be connected to Monday’s shooting that killed Skyé Bleu Evans-Cowley at a home on that city’s east side.

“We are not seeking any other persons of interest related to this case at this time, and we do not believe that there is any ongoing threat to the community,” the Green Bay Police Department said in an update Friday afternoon.

Police did not release additional details about the shooting.
