Report: At Least 5 Youths Shot Dead in Wisconsin; Sheriff's Deputy Sought

Sunday , October 07, 2007

A Wisconsin town is under lockdown after a suspect believed to be with the local sheriff's office went on a killing spree, gunning down at least five youths in a 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.

A family member of one of the victims told WITI-TV, a FOX affiliate, that one of the victims involved in the shooting is a student at the Milwaukee Area Technical College.

The suspect, believed to be with the Forest County Sheriff's Department, allegedly fired all the shots, WMTJ reporter Dan O'Donnell told FOX News. He is on the loose and believed to be armed and dangerous.

The town of Crandon is located about 100 miles north of Green Bay.

CRANDON - Six people were killed early Sunday morning in a shooting rampage in northern Wisconsin according to Crandon police Chief John Dennee.

A dispatcher for the State Patrol who declined to give his full name said several of its officers had gone to Forest County to aid in the investigation because the alleged shooter is an employee of the Forest County Sheriff's Department and a part-time officer for the Crandon Police Department.

According to the Town of Argonne Chairman, the suspect is Forest County Deputy Tyler Peterson.

"We're not looking for anybody anymore," said Chief Dennee, who was outside the police department, no more than two blocks from where the shooting occurred. Dennee declined comment when asked whether the suspect was dead.
