6 Youths Shot Dead in Wisconsin; Sheriff’s Deputy Sought

Wisconsin town is under lockdown after a suspect believed to be with the local sheriff's office went on a killing spree, gunning down as many as six youths in their Crandon home early Sunday morning.

Crandon Mayor Gary Bradley told FOX News that the town is under a "gag order" regarding the overnight event but no one in the town can leave church, home or anywhere else they happened to be Sunday morning.

A witness told WMTJ Radio that gunfire erupted in the home at about 3 a.m. Sunday morning. Ten area youths from the ages of 16 to 21 were reportedly in the home when the shots were fired. Fatalities are being reported, but the number of casualties is still unconfirmed.

I am wondering if one of his children was there at the party. They said this happened around 3 am this morning.

There will be survivors imo since they are saying about 10-12 kids were there.

Good grief all these multiple murders lately. It is so chilling.

I think he has probably gone somewhere and blown his brains out.

The wife of Crandon, Wis., Mayor Gary Bradley confirmed Sunday afternoon that several people are dead and several more are injured. The Associated Press puts the number of fatalities at five.

One young man was treated and released from St. Mary's Hospital in nearby Rhinelander, a hospital representative said. A second young man is being treated at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. His condition is currently unknown.

I lost my link and can't find it. Tyler Peterson was a part time employee of the Crandon Police Department and recently hired as a part time employee of Forest County Sheriffs Department. So he wasn't necessarily new to law inforcement work. What the heck was this shooting about?

The reporter I heard said that it may have started about something having to do with an ex-girlfriend.

My dearest Chicoliving,
Is the Sheriff's employee him or another Sheriff or a dispatcher?

All of my Love and Respect to you,

I have never heard of a town given a gag order or put on lockdown before!! Wow! That is absurd!!

I am glad the POS is dead and I feel so sorry for the families of the victims. Who would imagine someone in LE would gun down defenseless kids?!

A Wisconsin town was to have its state of lockdown lifted after a police chief said law enforcement is no longer looking for a suspect — believed to be with the local sheriff's office — who went on a killing spree early Sunday morning, gunning down at least five youths in a Crandon home.

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."

Well that's something anyway. Fox News Channel reporting that a possible press conference will occur.

A reporter on FNC via phone is reporting that Tyler was a sheriff deputy and a Crandon police officer. He went to his ex girlfriends apartment where this party was happening and started shooting. Party goers were recent high school grads and current high schoolers. Neighboring county is reporting that there will be a presser at 6 local time but the reporter can't confirm that since no one is returning calls but he says a presser would be the next logical step.

Shortest presser in history! There will be a full presser tomorrow. The person speaking announced just that and walked away but questions started pouring out and a few were answered. He was off duty and 20 yrs old, the family has just been notified. There will be a meeting of some sorts with the attorney general tomorrow and more info at tomorrows presser.
