“An 18-year-old gunman who injured two students at a high school prom in northern Wisconsin Saturday night died after he was shot by police,” abcnews.go.com reports. “The shootings took place just after 11 p.m. local time when the suspect showed up with a rifle outside Antigo High School and started shooting, said Eric Roller, the city’s police chief.” The report uses the usual terms to describe the now-dead rifleman (and former Antigo student) Jakob Wagner’s weaponry . . .
The Unified School District of Antigo said in a statement that the gunman, identified by police as Jakob Wagner, had a high-powered rifle and a large ammunition clip.
Officers already in the parking lot patrolling the event returned fire and shot the suspect, police said.
The Langlade County coroner said Sunday that Wagner died after he was transported to a local hospital.
Good guys with guns save the day again. Who’d a thunk it?
