WISCONSIN — After the mass shooting incident at the Azana Salon & Spa on Sunday, October 21st, Wisconsin has now seen six such deadly shooting incidents over the past eight years.
The first was in November of 2004 in Sawyer County during hunting season. Six hunters were killed and two were wounded by 36-year-old Chai Vang. Vang is now serving life in prison.
In March of 2005, 44-year-old Terry Ratzmann burst into a church service being held by a Church of Living God congregation and fired 22 rounds before shooting himself. He killed seven others in that service.
Ratzmann shot the church’s pastor and the pastor’s family before moving on to others in the conference room at the hotel.
All reports following this shooting indicate Ratzmann acted alone. It also says six of the seven victims were shot in the back and that Ratzmann stopped once to reload.
