MediaTakeOut.com just learned of another mass shooting - luckily no one was injured. A rifle-slinging Wisconsin teenager opened fire outside his former high school during prom Saturday night, wounding two students before a police officer fatally shot him.
The suspect, 18-year-old Jakob E. Wagner, was pronounced dead in a hospital about two hours after the Antigo High School shootout, authorities said. One victim, a female, was treated and released for gunshot wounds. A male victim underwent surgery and is expected to survive, police said.
Wagner started shooting outside the school, about 70 miles northwest of Green Bay, at 11:15 p.m., police said.
An officer patrolling the school returned gunfire, “stopping the threat” after hearing gunshots, police said.
A prom DJ said authorities quickly locked down the school, with guns drawn, after chaos erupted outside the gym entrance.
Police have not released a motive for the attack or said if Wagner is believed to have targeted anyone.
Wagner graduated from Antigo in 2015, and appears to have continued playing in its marching band through the past year, according to his Facebook and Instagram pages. The school's newspaper listed him as an honor roll student last year.
He posted an Instagram photo about four months ago showing what he said was an airsoft rifle, placed on a bed. His last Instagram photo was posted one week before the shooting, showing bacon strips cooking on a grill. Wagner said the photo was taken outside his old school.
