A 27-year-old man suspected in a fatal shooting in La Crosse is being held in Illinois. U-S Marshals took Shavonte Thompson into custody last Friday in Peoria.

Investigators think Thompson is the one who fatally wounded an 18-year-old man last November. He’s also a suspect in another La Crosse shooting in March 2019. Prosecutors say they are currently working to get him extradited to Wisconsin so he can face those charges.
