Janesville police officers responded to a shooting in the 2600 block of Kellogg Avenue. Lt. Charles Aagaard of the Janesville Police Department said a 39-year-old Green County man shot the Janesville man, who died at the scene.

The Rock County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Clifford A. Grice of Janesville. The examiner concludes Grice died from firearm-related trauma, and was shot multiple times. The forensic examination is expected to end Friday.

Chief David Moore said in a press conference Thursday afternoon that the suspect, Lucas E. Stuhr, faces charges of first degree intentional homicide.

Moore said Stuhr and Grice had never met before the shooting, and that Grice was targeted for knowing Stuhr's ex-girlfriend.

"[Stuhr's] relationship was in the process of ending," said Chief Moore.

Investigators said there was a history of domestic violence between Stuhr and his ex.

Authorities say after firing multiple shots at Grice, Stuhr took off from scene. He was arrested at the Crazyhorse Campground in Brodhead after a vehicle pursuit.

Neighbors remember the victim as always willing to lend a hand.

"He was a very good guy," said Sandra Pack, a neighbor of the victim. "There was a time that I had gotten a flat tire, and he came over and put that on, too."
