~ SPECIAL REPORT: School Shooting West of Madison, Wisconsin

Posted by Admin on September 29, 2006

School Shooting in Cazenovia, Wisconsin:

I regret to inform my readers that Weston Schools Principal Mr. John Klang has passed away from injuries received in the shooting this morning. Mr. Klang gave his life attempting to disarm the gunman and protect his students and staff. A true hero, and on all accounts a very good man.

Prayers of strength and comfort to Mr. Klang’s family, the school students, staff, Law enforcement officers, and the whole community affected by this tragedy.

To add to the devastation facing this VERY small community, another student who attends the high school was killed when his vehicle, traveling at a high rate of speed, crashed into a tree about 3-4 miles from the school. He had passed an officer on patrol prior to the accident, but the officer was not in pursuit (trying to catch up, but with no lights or sirens). More information about the accident is in the press conference transcript below. The identity of the student has not been released pending notification of family. Also see the article below.
