What a terrible tragedy. I can't understand how someone so young could become a cop either. But if he's 20, it sounds as if two of the victims graduated in his same class. Those poor kids, they had absolutely no chance.

Fox just showed the gunman's photo. It does look like the same guy on myspace. He is a little older in the ms photo. Its probably a recent photo. The one on Fox looks like one of him in high school. Looked like a nice friendly clean cut teenager.

They have been saying this was his longtime girlfriend. I wonder how long they had dated.

My teenaged daughter is 17 and doesn't date, thank God. It's getting so you don't know who to trust your child with. This man was a police officer, for heaven sakes.

Did you see the photo that they showed? He sure looks like the guy on myspace though except the picture on tv was when he was in high school.

Maybe he put another town in on myspace because he didn't really want others to know exactly where he lived.

Oh well it may not be him but he sure favors the guy. Dark hair and all.

Well, I know from some searches that he went to Eleva-Strum high school... I haven't googled the locations, but isn't it possible those two cities are close together?

Two or more towns could share a high school. It happens all the time in small communities.

Now I'm wondering because I don't think he looks the same! The one at the Fox news site looks like such a happy, healthy young man. What in the world goes so wrong that you go ballistic and kill others and then yourself? Over a GIRL? How are kids getting the message that this is ok to do?

Anyway, Fox news says the pic is from the Crandon HS yearbook. There was a TP that went to Eleva-Strum though, and was in athletics.

My prayers are with all the families and friends right now. In such a small town everyone will have trouble with this one.

Eleva is South of Eau Claire Wi / it would be quite a ways from Crandon.To far for them to share a high school. I googled them & its 188 miles one way.

I heard this AM that one of the kids is in critical condition from injuries. Has anyone heard yet what time the presser is?

I happened to see this story on my Comcast homepage this morning and came here to WS to find out more. What a sad, sad story. My thoughts and prayers to the victim's families and the whole town.

On the News lastnight they stated Lindsay Stahl (14 yr old killed in rampage ) & Peterson ( shooter) were related. Stahl's Dad is a fireman.

That doesn't mean he lives there now though, does it? Or, do you have to live in the town you work in as a police officer? Maybe he had to live in another place in order to be a Deputy though, and got a pass because of that?

I am certain a deputy has to live in the county he works for. At least the deputies I know & the local LE has to live in the township. At least thats the way it is here.

from one story I read, it sounded like the 14 yr-old as his girlfriend but it makes more sense that it was the 18-year old girl.

This is so sad. The killer is too young to have been a deputy sheriff!! That's just crazy.

thanks for the links. wow, this line of the Tribune story kills me

"A second victim was Bradley Schultz, 20, 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.""

Apparently, Peterson acted without thinking through the consequences of his actions and did not even consider how this would forever impact the lives of his friends and relatives or the community.

One defining characteristic of an adult is that he/she thinks long term. When this happens is different for each person, but 20 seems quite young. I wonder how long he had been an officer. Peterson was also dating a high school student, which indicates to me that he hadn't really moved on from his own h.s. years and was still not what most persons would call an adult either by age or by maturity.

What Crandon and Forest County did was essentially to arm a kid they thought - probably by background - would be a good clean fit. Obviously, this was not enough. Peterson's pictures show a clean-cut guy, but revealed nothing about what was inside of him. Although nothing is guaranteed, Wisconsin should at least have an age limit of 21 for LE officers. It will be interesting to see how his pre-murder behaviors unfold as the investigation progresses.

A possible reason for the change of address: He is from a small town. He would have to go elsewhere to get the law enforcement training. So he could have grown up in Crandon, graduated in the last few years, moved to a larger community for LE courses, then moved back to his hometown so he could get a job.

I note that Peterson is NOT listed as a deputy for Forest County. Either he was very new or his name has been removed.
