UPDATE: Detectives with the Stevens Point Police Department, with the help of law enforcement from the Dane County area, executed a search warrant and collected evidence Saturday in the Village of Marshall, a community in Dane County.

While Engen’s whereabouts are unknown, SPPD is actively working with Dane County law enforcement and they ask that if anyone sees Engen to call 911. Online court records indicate Engen has previous felony convictions for marijuana possession and burglary.

ORIGINAL STORY: A second victim connected with the shooting incident in Stevens Point was identified by the Racine Police Department as a 20-year-old man, who went to a Racine hospital at 4:33 a.m. Friday for non-life threatening gunshot wounds, according to a source close to the story.

The second victim, who was not named by police, suffered from minor injuries. Investigators from the Racine Police Department are working with the Stevens Point Police Department on the case, which is currently still under investigation.

The man was with Horlick graduate Deonta Lezine Thursday when the two were allegedly shot by Kyle Engen. Lezine is still on life support, said the source, who wished not to be named.

“(The man) was grazed and he had about four butterfly stitches,” the source said. “I don’t know why he ran, but he did. I don’t think he knew that Deonta was shot three times in the head.”

No charges have been filed against Engen, but investigators have developed Engen, 30, as their prime suspect, an update at WAOW.com reads.

Engen is described as six feet tall and around 155 pounds; blonde hair, brown eyes and a “420” tattoo on his right arm. He is believed to be armed and driving a maroon or purple Lexus SUV.
