GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay police say they need the public's help in finding a person of interest in a fatal shooting earlier this week.
Authorities say 32-year-old Steven Sims died from gunshot wounds he received late Tuesday night at an apartment in the 1100 block of Stuart Street. Sims was the boyfriend of a woman who lived at that apartment.
Police say the couple had been having problems with their relationship and he hadn't been living there recently. Sims had moved to the region a few years ago from the Chicago area.
During a news conference Thursday, officers identified 21-year-old Terry Lee Shepard as the person of interest. Shepard was convicted of several crimes, including battery and theft of a vehicle in 2010. He was just released from prison on April 7 and arrived in Green Bay on Tuesday.
Cops say they've recovered the handgun they believe was used in the shooting by Shepard.
The Wisconsin Department of Corrections has a warrant out for Shepard's arrest on a probation violation. Police say they consider Shepard armed and dangerous.
While he may still be in the Green Bay area, police indicate Shepard also has family in the Kenosha area.
