A 53-year-old New Richmond man died Thursday night as the apparent victim of a shooting. 

New Richmond Police reports at 9:40 p.m., a call was made about shots being fired at an address in the 600 block of West 8th Street. 

Upon their arrival, they found Richard Rose with a gunshot wound and two males had fled in a white van. 

Rose was transported to a hospital by New Richmond EMS where he later died from his injuries. 

The two suspects which fled were located and taken into custody. In a Facebook post, NR Police Chief Craig Yehlik said their names are being withheld pending formal charging by the St. Croix County District Attorney's Office. He added the case remains active at this time and there doesn't appear to be any continued danger to the community. 

If anyone has any information about this case, they are asked to contact the New Richmond Police Department at 715-246-6667 during business hours or 24/7 at the St. Croix County Communications Center at 715-246-6131. 

Yehlik wanted to thank the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office, New Richmond Fire and the New Richmond Area Ambulance service for their quick response and assistance in this case.
