TOMAHAWK (WSAW) -- A 32-year-old man has been arrested in the shooting death of another man in Lincoln County.

Tomahawk police say Charles Ramp, 52, was found at a home on W. Mohawk Drive around 5:30 p.m. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

The suspect, Eric Moen, was arrested in Chippewa County, according to Tomahawk Police Chief Al Elvins. Lincoln County Assistant District Attorney Kurt Zengler and Moen's attorney appeared by phone at the 10:30 a.m. hearing in Merrill. Zengler told the judge that Moen told investigators he shot Ramp with a shotgun because he was a bad person.

Moen and Ramp had been friends for a few years, Elvins said.

"We are in the process of running leads and covering every avenue that we can cover to try and find out what triggered somebody, what would cause somebody to do this," Elvins said.

Elvins says four other people were at the home at the time of the shooting. One person was hit by debris, but not seriously injured.

The gun suspected to have been used in the shooting was found just outside Lincoln County.
