Crandon is a northeastern Wisconsin town about 225 miles north of Milwaukee with a populaton of about 2,000.

According to Jenna Bradley, gunshots were heard at about 3 a.m. at the suspects ex-girlfriends's residence where about 10 people were for a party. Victims ranged from current Crandon High School students, recent graduates and the ex-girlfirend, said Karly Johnson.

"He graduated with my brother," she said. "He was nice. He was an average guy. Normal. You wouldn't think he could do that."

Mayor Gary Bradley declined to comment about the on-going investigation but stated that the community will unite and remain strong to prevail through the situation.
