Three men were killed and at least three others were injured in a shooting early Sunday morning at a busy Kenosha County tavern, authorities said.

After a manhunt involving about 100 officers, authorities arrested a suspect, the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department said Sunday afternoon. The person is expected to be charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide, and additional charges are possible.

There is no threat to the community at this time, the sheriff's department said.

The three injured men have been hospitalized, and there is at least one possible additional shooting victim, authorities said.

Investigators have asked local hospitals to notify them of any additional gunshot victims.

The suspected shooter was a patron who "wasn't cooperating with the management" at the tavern, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said in a morning news conference. The man left the bar and returned a short time later, about 12:45 a.m., and began shooting, he said.

Shots were fired inside the tavern as well as outside, leading investigators to believe more than one person could have fired shots, Beth said. He believed handguns were used.
