SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - Police have arrested five suspects in the fatal shooting of a young man at his home.

Superior police say the five people from Duluth and Superior who range from 17 to 19-years-old were arrested Wednesday in the death of 20-year-old Garth Velin. He was pronounced dead not far from the scene of the shooting Tuesday night.

Velin’s girlfriend told investigators she was upstairs when she heard gunshots, went downstairs and found Velin on the floor unresponsive.

Officers moved the unconscious man across the street to a sidewalk while the house was searched. Velin’s girlfriend is not a suspect.

Police haven’t said how the five suspects were involved in the shooting.
