Manhunt;Camoflaged man with assault rifle kills teen swimmers

NIAGARA, Wis. - A man wearing camouflage clothing and carrying an assault rifle walked out of the woods and shot four young people who had gathered at a Wisconsin river to go swimming, killing three of them and wounding one.

More than 100 law enforcement officers from at least 10 agencies searched Friday for the gunman, a middle-age man who was last seen near the town of Niagara, across the state line from Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Officers set up roadblocks and evacuated an unknown number of homes.

Chief Deputy Jerry Sauve of the Marinette County Sheriff's Department said his office got a call around 6 p.m. Thursday reporting a shooting in the town of Niagara along the Menominee River.

A command post was set up for state and other law enforcement personnel being brought in to help sheriff's officials investigate what Sauve called an "active shooter situation."

The victims had gathered near a railroad bridge on the Menominee River when the gunman came out of the woods and opened fire about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Sheriff Mike Kanikula.

Two of the bodies had not been removed from the scene Friday because of a fear that the shooter was still in the area, the sheriff said.

The dead were identified as Tiffany Pohlson, 17; Anthony Spigarelli, 18; and Bryan Mort, 19. A fourth victim, 20-year-old Daniel Louis Gordon, was wounded.

Niagara is about 210 miles north of Milwaukee.

    • Brilliant... :-)

      ...and so true. I remember once when I caught one of my guns sneaking out the door to rob a liquor store. I sentenced him to a year in my gun safe with no oil. You have to watch those guns like a hawk, or they'll reak havoc when you're not looking.

  • PS: They will never take away our guns in the USA. I have two AKMs and most of the parts to build three more stashed away. Anyone with the parts and access to a machine shop can do it.

    The constitution guarantees your right to self-defense. If you don't like it, fine. That's your right, just don't fuck with mine.

    • Obama will re-elect judges who will eventually over turn this. his views on guns are well documented.

      You think what you want, guns are bad and they need to be outlawed 100 percent all over the country.

    • If gun's were removed from law abiding citizens, then only the criminals would have them. There is the black market. A person that wants to commit a crime using a gun does not care about breaking the law. In their mind there is no law. So removing fire arms from law abiding citizens is foolish.

      Every citizen has a right to defend their body, family and home. And no one has the right to take that right away.
