Five Killed in Wisconsin Rampage
A Crandon, Wisconsin law enforcement employee went on a shooting spree early Sunday, killing at least five people. Much remains unclear about the situation at this time, although details have started to surface.
The Star Tribune reports that although authorities would not confirm whether or not the suspect was dead, they have stated that they "are not looking for anybody anymore." The BBC is reporting that "unconfirmed reports" say that the police have shot and killed the suspect.
An acquaintance of the suspect, Karly Johnson, said that the victim's included the suspect's ex-girlfriend, Crandon High School students, and recent graduates. Another local said that the shooting happened at a party hosted by the suspect's ex-girlfriend.
The town, a close-knit northern Wisconsin community, has been devastated by the attacks. "If there's five or six children or kids, young adults, whatever, involved in this, I'd know every one of them - the community's that small and that tight-knit," said Bud Evans, an elder at Crandon Praise Chapel, in an interview with BBC.
