Police seized spent ammunition, a gun sling, and journals from the home of an 18-year-old who opened fire on students at a prom at his former school in northern Wisconsin before being fatally shot by an officer, court records show.
Jakob Wagner was shot multiple times to stop the attack. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Officers were checking cars in the Antigo High School parking lot last month when Wagner opened fire and wounded two people as they left the dance, according to police. One 18-year-old male student was struck in the leg, and a bullet grazed his date’s thigh. Both are recovering.
Authorities haven’t revealed a motive in the case, but people who knew Wagner have said he was bullied.
