Four young swimmers shot, three killed
This is terrible that he would kill these young people who were not harming anyone. I hope they find him soon before he kills someone else.

This is so scary!!!! I really hope they catch him soon, no doubt he will kill more if he's not caught.
Justice for Travis
Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

They caught him. I am so happy they got him before he could kill someone else. Now I hope these young people get justice.

From May 2009:
Scott J. Johnson of Kingsford, MI was sentenced to 295 years in prison by Judge Tim Duket in Marinette County Branch I Circuit Court Thursday, May 21.
He was found guilty on three counts of first degree intentional homicide, three counts of attempted first degree intentional homicide, the first three for killing three teenagers, Bryan Mort, 19, Anthony Spigarelli, 18, and Tiffany Ann Pohlson, 17 with an assault rife on July 31, 2008, and also an unrelated count of 2nd degree sexual assault the day previous, July 30, 2008.
“Tiffany Pohlson, 17, Anthony Spigarelli, 18, Katrina Coates, 17, and Derek Barnes, 18, swam across the river to Wisconsin in order to jump off of a large rock overhanging the river located west of the defendant’s firing position,” Freyberg’s sentencing memo says. “In swimsuits and shorts, they walked barefoot in a staggered line on a rough trail through the woods toward the rock face where the defendant waited with his assault rifle. Anthony Spigarelli was in front chatting with his best friend Derek Barnes. Tiffany Pohlson and her best friend, Katrina Coates, followed closely behind. As he waited in ambush, the defendant heard the teenagers coming toward his position. He could tell by their voices that there were two males and two females. The defendant became afraid that he was ‘trapped,’ that he would be discovered, and that someone would have a cell phone and he would be ‘busted.’
“When the group was about 15 to 20 feet away, the defendant jumped up from his position. The teenagers were startled and confused by the sight of a man in camouflage and they stopped on the trail. When the defendant raised his rifle and advanced toward them, all four teenagers turned to run. As they fled, the defendant opened fire. Anthony Spigarelli was shot in the back of the head and died instantly. His body rolled down the hill toward the river until its descent was stopped by a small tree. Tiffany Pohlson was holding the hand of Katrina Coates when she was struck by a bullet to the back of her head, killing her instantly.”
Johnson fired some shots at the other two teen-agers, who were fleeing through the woods. Then he turned his attention to the swimming hole and sprayed bullets at the people who were on the Michigan bank. Bryan Mort, nineteen, was seriously wounded... [H]e was pronounced dead at the hospital.
