Manitowoc police say a 52-year-old man was shot and killed Friday morning after he answered a knock at his door. The victim has been identified as Kor Yang. The fatal shooting happened at a house in the 2200 block of S. 9th Street around 5:30 a.m. Friday.
Police Chief Nick Reimer said Yang’s the victim’s wife, her 16 and 4 year old children, and her one year old grandson were in the home at the time. The suspect fled, and has not been found or identified. Police don’t believe the shooting was a random act.
This is the first shooting homicide in the city of Manitowoc since 2001. Manitowoc police say the State Crime Lab and Wisconsin State Patrol have been called in to help investigate, per standard protocol.
