Wisconsin Shooting

CRANDON, Wis. (AP) -- The lone survivor of a shooting rampage in Crandon, Wisconsin, that left six others dead remains in critical condition.

Authorities say a 20-year-old deputy sheriff fatally shot six young people who'd gathered for a pizza party at a home in the small town. It's about 225 miles north of Milwaukee.

The gunman, Tyler Peterson, was killed several hours later eight miles outside of town. The mayor says a sniper shot Peterson, but police won't confirm that officers killed him.

Three of the victims were students at Crandon's high school, and three were recent graduates. Monday classes are called off.

A motive for the attack isn't clear. The mother of one dead girl says the suspect may have been a jealous boyfriend.
