Deputy Sheriff Kills Six

An off duty deputy sheriff killed six people Sunday in what may have been a "jealous boyfriend's" rampage in a small town in Wisconsin, according to the Star Tribune. The victims were students and recent graduates of Crandon High School. The shooter, Tyler Peterson, 20, was shot and killed by officers eight miles north of Crandon Sunday afternoon.

In the town of about 2,000 people, residents say that everyone in the town will be affected by this tragedy.

The residents are questioning how this young man capable of killing six people, was cleared to become a law enforcement officer. The investigation will be carried out by the state Department of Criminal Investigation because the gunman is a law enforcement officer, according to the Pioneer Press.
