Let Us Pray for Those Who are Grieving

I will post just a short portion of this horrible story coming from Wisconsin. I would like to ask that on this site, let us keep the comments to prayer for the families who have lost loved ones, and for Charlie Neitzel who is the lone survivor.

May those who lost their lives rest in peace, and may the families know that even when they "walk thru the valley of the shadow of death" God is there with them!

CRANDON, Wis. — An off-duty sheriff's deputy who killed six young people and wounded another during a homecoming weekend gathering may have been motivated by a romantic dispute, relatives of the victims said.

Tyler Peterson, 20, was shot to death after opening fire early Sunday at a home where authorities said the friends met for pizza and movies. He was off-duty from his full-time job as a Forest County deputy sheriff; he also was a part-time Crandon police officer.

"I'm waiting for somebody to wake me up right now. This is a bad, bad dream," said Jenny Stahl, whose 14-year-old daughter, Lindsey Stahl, was the youngest victim. "All I heard it was a jealous boyfriend and he went berserk. He took them all out."

Crandon Police Chief John Dennee declined comment on whether Peterson had a romantic relationship with any of the victims.

The lone survivor of the shooting, Charlie Neitzel, 21, of Pickerel, was upgraded to serious
condition and was improving Monday at St. Joseph's Hospital, spokeswoman Karla David said.
