A 20-year-old off-duty deputy kills three highschool students and three recent highschool graduates in Cradon, Wisconsin. There were seven people having a pizza and movie night when the Forest County deputy sheriff started shooting. The one surviver was injured and is currently hospitalized in Marshfield. The shooter, Tyler Peterson was killed by another, on-duty sheriff. The on-duty sheriff had minor injuries. One of the sources for both the Pioneer Press and the Star Tribune, Jenny Stahl, the mother of one of the victims said that the motive could be a jealous boyfriend.
The Start Tribune and the Pioneer Press had many of the same sources who were mostly real people, human sources. They were the neighbor who heard the gun shot, one victims mother, and a highschool student who knew the shooter from a class.
They both also had authority figure sources such as two officers and the mayor.
The two articles were almost identical, they used the same exact quotes and sources and placed the information in the same order.
