Breaking news: There was just a school shooting in southwest Wisconsin this morning. The principal was shot. This is a very rural area - not known
for violence. The community must be going through such shock.
Cazenovia - A 15-year-old student walked into a rural school with a gun and shot the principal three times before classes started Friday, authorities
said. The suspect was taken into custody and all students were reported safe.
Sauk County Sheriff Randy Stammen said a custodian saw the student enter Weston School with a shot gun. The custodian, along with other teachers and
students, wrestled the student and took away the shotgun. But the student broke free and entered a main corridor, where he was approached by Principal
John Klang, Stammen said.
The student then took out a handgun and shot Klang three times. No one else was injured, authorities said. The student was taken into custody and held
at the county sheriff's department, Stammen said.

What is going on with all of these school shootings lately? Are all these kids thinking "wow, I wish I could do that!" and then they decide to go
out in a blaze of "glory"?
I feel for those townspeople.
