Gunman Shoots Two Outside Wisconsin High School

At least two people have been wounded, and the shooter killed, after a gunman opened fire outside of a Wisconsin high school.

A gunman who opened fire Saturday outside of a Wisconsin high school prom, wounding two students, has died, authorities said.

Jakob Wagner, 18, was pronounced dead on Sunday at a local hospital, shortly after police say he shot two students with a rifle as they were exiting Antigo High School.

WSAW-TV identified Wagner as a recent Antigo High School graduate. He is believed to have shot his victims at random.

The Antigo Police Department said officers were patrolling outside the school when they responded to the sound of gunfire around 11 p.m. local time.

One of the officers shot and critically wounded Wagner. The two students suffered wounds to their legs that were not life-threatening, police said.

A female victim was treated and then discharged, while a male victim underwent surgery for his gunshot wound. Their names and ages have not been released as of Sunday afternoon.
