    Default Off-duty Wis. deputy sheriff kills 6

    CRANDON, Wis. - An off-duty sheriff's deputy went on a shooting rampage at a home in northern Wisconsin early Sunday, killing three high school students and three recent graduates before authorities fatally shot him, officials said. Another victim was in critical condition.

    The suspect was 20 years old and worked full-time as a Forest County deputy sheriff and part-time as a Crandon police officer, Sheriff Keith Van Cleve said. The deputy was not working at the time of the shooting, he said.

    The survivor was hospitalized in nearby Marshfield, said Police Chief John Dennee. A Crandon police officer who fired back was treated for minor injuries and released.

    Gary Bradley, mayor of the city of about 2,000, said earlier Sunday that the suspect had been brought down by a sniper, but Van Cleve would not confirm that officers shot the suspect.

    It wasn't immediately clear what the gunman's motive was, but the mother of a 14-year-old victim said the suspect may have been a jealous boyfriend. The shooting occurred in a white, two-story duplex about a block from downtown Crandon.

    Three of the victims were Crandon High School students, said schools Superintendent Richard Peters. The other three had graduated from the high school within the past three years.

    The sheriff did not release the deputy's name, but Peters identified him as Tyler Peterson, also a graduate of the 300-student high school.

    "There is probably nobody in Crandon who is not affected by this," Peters said, adding that students would be especially affected. "They are going to wake up in shock and disbelief and a lot of pain."

    One of the dead was 14-year-old Lindsey Stahl, said her mother, Jenny Stahl, 39.

    She said her daughter called her Saturday night and asked whether she could sleep over at a friend's house. Jenny Stahl agreed.

    "I'm waiting for somebody to wake me up right now. This is a bad, bad dream," the weeping mother said. "All I heard it was a jealous boyfriend and he went berserk. He took them all out."

    Karly Johnson, 16, said that she knew the gunman and that he had helped her in a tech education class.

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

    Marci Franz, 35, who lives two houses south of the duplex, said gunshots awoke her.

    "I heard probably five or six shots, a short pause and then five or six more," she said. "I wasn't sure if it was gunfire initially. I thought some kids were messing around and hitting a nearby metal building."

    Then she heard eight louder shots and tires squealing, she said.

    "I was just about to get up and call it in, and I heard sirens," she said. "There's never been a tragedy like this here. There's been individual incidents, but nothing of this magnitude."

    Her husband, David Franz, 36, said it was hard to accept that someone in law enforcement committed such an act.

    "The first statement we said to each other was, how did he get through the system?" David Franz said. "How do they know somebody's background, especially that young? It is disturbing, to say the least."

    The sheriff said he would meet with state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen on Monday morning to discuss the case. Dennee said the state Department of Criminal Investigation will handle the case because the suspect was a deputy and officer.

    The Crandon School District called off classes Monday.

    The community, about 225 miles north of Milwaukee in an area known for logging and outdoor activities, is facing a trying time but is pulling together, Bradley said.

    "We are a strong community. We always have been," he said. "This is agonizing, but we will prevail."

    CRANDON, Wis. An off-duty sheriff's deputy killed six young people and critically wounded another during a homecoming weekend gathering, a rampage relatives of the victims said may have been fueled by a romantic dispute.

    Tyler Peterson, 20, was shot to death after opening fire early Sunday at a home where authorities said the friends met for pizza and movies. He was off-duty from his full-time job as a Forest County deputy sheriff; he also was a part-time Crandon police officer.

    "I'm waiting for somebody to wake me up right now. This is a bad, bad dream," said Jenny Stahl, whose 14-year-old daughter, Lindsey Stahl, was the youngest victim. "All I heard it was a jealous boyfriend and he went berserk. He took them all out."

    Crandon Police Chief John Dennee declined comment on whether Peterson had a romantic relationship with any of the victims.

    The lone survivor of the shooting, a male, remained in critical condition Monday at St. Joseph's Hospital, according to nursing supervisor Penny Funk.

    The white, two-story duplex where the shooting occurred was about a block from downtown Crandon, a small town located 225 miles north of Milwaukee in an area known for logging and outdoor activities.

    Marci Franz, who lives two houses from the duplex where the shooting occurred, said she was awakened by the gunshots.

    "I heard probably five or six shots, a short pause and then five or six more," she said.

    Then she heard eight louder shots and tires squealing, she said.

    "I was just about to get up and call it in, and I heard sirens," she said. "There's never been a tragedy like this here. There's been individual incidents, but nothing of this magnitude."

    Sheriff Keith Van Cleve said he would meet with state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen on Monday morning to discuss the case. Crandon Mayor Gary Bradley said Sunday that a sniper killed the suspect, but Van Cleve would not confirm that officers shot him.

    The shooting raised questions among residents about whether Peterson had met requirements to become a law enforcement officer. David Franz, who is married to Marci Franz, said it was hard to accept that someone in law enforcement was the gunman.

    "The first statement we said to each other was, 'How did he get through the system?"' Franz said.

    Peterson's father, Steve Peterson, said that the family planned to draft a statement to the public, but declined Monday to talk in detail. Nothing his family said about him now would be believable to most people, he said.

    "It is very trying," he said.

    Three of the victims were Crandon High School students, said school Superintendent Richard Peters, and the other three had graduated within the past three years. The Crandon School District called off classes Monday.

    "There is probably nobody in Crandon who is not affected by this," Peters said, adding that students "are going to wake up in shock and disbelief and a lot of pain."

    Peters did not know whether Peterson had graduated from the 300-student school. But Crandon resident Karly Johnson, 16, said that she knew the gunman and that he had helped her in a tech education class.

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

    One victim, 20-year-old Bradley Schultz, was a third-year student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who was home to visit his friends, said his aunt, Sharon Pisarek.

    "We still don't have many details, but from what they've told us, there was a girl next to him and he was covering her, protecting her," she said, sobbing. "He was loved by everybody. He was everybody's son. Senseless."

    Another aunt, Rose Gerow, said Schultz was majoring in criminal justice and wanted to be a homicide detective.

    "This is senseless because they were friends," Gerow said. "These guys weren't after his girlfriend, they were just getting together."

    The town of about 2,000 people last made headlines in August, when community groups and a soldier helped bring an Iraqi girl to the United States for a cornea transplant. The mayor pleaded Monday for support to help the town begin to heal.

    "This is something we have to put back together," he said.

    sad story. but the above quote....why is it that whenever someone snaps and goes postal, you seem to hear this same quote?

    maybe "normal" isnt normal.
    just something to ponder.
