Sheriffs Deputy Goes On Shooting Rampage
By ROBERT IMRIE, Associated Press Writer 24 minutes ago
CRANDON, Wis. - A local law enforcement employee went on a shooting rampage early Sunday in remote northern Wisconsin, killing at least five people, authorities said.
Crandon Police Chief John Dennee, speaking outside the police department about two blocks from the shooting site, would not say whether the suspect was dead. But he said: "We're not looking for anybody anymore."
Dennee would not confirm details about the shooting, but a dispatcher for the State Patrol who declined to give his full name as a matter of department practice said the suspect is an employee of the Forest County Sheriff's Department and a part-time officer for the Crandon Police Department.
Several State Patrol officers went to Forest County to help investigators, the dispatcher said.
"It's a pretty tragic situation here," said County Supervisor Tom Vollmar, who lives just outside Crandon, a city of about 2,000 people. "There are five or six people dead."
The State Patrol and the Crandon Fire Department detoured a steady stream of traffic from two blocks of U.S. Highway 8 in the downtown area. Some residents stood in nearby front yards.
Crandon Mayor Gary Bradley declined to comment on the status of the investigation.
"We are going to get together and be strong," he said. "We are a strong community. We always have been. This is agonizing, but we will prevail."
The northeast Wisconsin town is about 225 miles north of Milwaukee. The area is known for logging, and fishing, hunting and snowmobiling.
All I can do is scratch my head at this one. Prayers go out to those involved.Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.

How very tragic. I saw on another site he was a 21 year old deputy of the County. One of those killed was allegedly the suspect's girlfriend. All were at a party being attended by young adults 18-21.
May thier families be comforted by God's strong faith and guidance.Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

Milwaukee is kinda bad as a reference point....I guess it's the only town they are familiar with?

Milwaukee is a bad reference point, PDawg. I probably would have used Green Bay. Here is the link to another version of the story by USA Today: Off-duty Wis. deputy kills 6, is killed
We talked about this in interpersonal communication today. Many of the students at my school are from Wisconsin. It was very sad to hear about. There was also a news story in our local paper.
According to the Mankato Free Press the motive was still unknown. However, it is suspected that he and his girlfriend had just broken up and that may have played a major factor in the motive.. Nothing is for sure at this point in time.Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
