... interim district administrator Donald Childs tells The Associated Press he believes the gunman planned to enter the prom and start shooting randomly.
...Wagner had approached the school with a high-powered rifle and a large ammunition clip.
The man who shot two students at Antigo High School's prom late Saturday had been bullied since at least middle school and had expressed an interest in guns, according to a former classmate.
"He was bullied a lot," said Emily Fisher, 19, who graduated from Antigo High School in 2015. ....
Wagner would talk about guns and weapons, and made replicas of them in art class, according to Fisher. .... Wagner's behavior was concerning to her. "Ever since we were younger, he was one of the kids you kind of watched out for," Fisher said..... "If someone was going to shoot the school, we thought it was going to be him."
Donald Childs, administrator of the Unified School District of Antigo, .... said Wagner was a "student with a disability" who had graduated from Antigo. He was working for what Childs described as a "community-based support/transition agency" that paid him to volunteer in Antigo's art department.
"So he was frequently in the school," Childs added.
Chief Roller acknowledged that his department has trained for active shooter situations and held drills in partnership with the school district.
"We regularly train for these situations through the [high] school and we use the different buildings of the school district," he said.
