A suspect is in custody after a man was shot to death Friday in Eau Claire, Wis.

Police in the western Wisconsin city responded to reports of gunshots at a residence in the 500 block of Dodge Street, on the city's east side, just before 3 p.m. Friday, according to an Eau Claire Police Department news release. A man was found dead of a gunshot wound at the residence.

Shortly afterward, a 55-year-old man approached officers and claimed responsibility. He is being held at the Eau Claire County jail pending charges. Police believe the suspect and victim knew each other.
