EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) - Police have arrested a 44-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a woman in Eau Claire.

Officers were called to the shooting at a home early Saturday. Attempts to revive the 36-year-old woman failed, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say an officer spotted a suspicious vehicle and stopped it a block from the shooting. The man driving the vehicle was arrested and a gun was found in his possession.

Police say the suspect told investigators he entered the victim’s home and shot her. Police say the suspect and the victim knew each other because they were neighbors.

The man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide and jailed.

An autopsy is scheduled. The name of the victim is being withheld until relatives are notified.
