Police in Wisconsin say a man accused of shooting eight hunters was "chasing after them and killing them."

Authorities say the deadly violence in Sawyer County erupted after a dispute over a tree stand on Sunday. They say two hunters who confronted Chai Vang were shot as were those who responded to calls for help.

Five people were killed and three were wounded.

Police say the suspect was "sniping" at the victims with an assault-style rifle.

The suspect was arrested after getting lost in the woods and running out of bullets.
