Last night was the turn of Antigo High School during a prom party. No one can imagine that Jakob Wagner, 18, graduated from Antigo High School last year was going to shoot against his friends.
Jakob opened fire during a prom party outside his own school wounding two students after the police fatally shot him. He was declared dead at the hospital two hours after the shooting.
Fortunately, according to police declarations, the two victims were taken to the hospital and they are safe. A female was treated and released for gunshot wounds. A male victim underwent surgery and is expected to survive.
According to the authorities, Jakob had no reason to shoot. But some days ago he posted a photo of the gun on Instagram. Also, photos with a girl identified as his girlfriend were found. It seems that they had cut their relationship a month ago.
Due to an officer was involved in this shooting, so he is under investigation with the state’s Division of Criminal Investigation in order to determine whether the use of force was justified.

Later another tragedy
On the other hand, this morning was the turn of Keystone Fellowship Church on the 400 block of Stump Road and its community.
In the middle of 11:00 a.m. service a member of Keystone Fellowship Church Breeana Sommers heard three gunshots and immediately calls 911. Then it was all confused.
A man fired at a man during the service killing the victim on that scene. He was taken to Abington-Lansdale Hospital. The victim was declared died at 12:11 p.m.

After investigations, the police confirmed that the gunman fired against 27-yearl-old Robert Braxton direct to the chest after a disturbance that escalated to an altercation between the gunman and the victim.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele informed during a press conference that the gunman is being interviewed and is cooperating with the investigation although he has not been arrested or charged yet.
At Facebook, the church published the confirmation of this notice to community:
“We at Keystone are saddened to confirm that a shooting took place at our Montgomeryville campus this morning. One man was shot and another is being questioned by police; no one was else was hurt. Police and medical personnel were called immediately. Police are investigating and we will release further information as soon as it becomes available. Our congregation is in prayer for everyone involved,” the message read.
On Monday, an autopsy will confirm the cause of death. In the meantime, Montgomery County detectives will continue with the investigations alongside Montgomery Township police.
What happen in our world?
These recent and regrettable events make us think about how gun control should be discussed in parliament. It is very important that the competent authorities in the United States take control about this topic in the US senate and corrective actions are taken in this regard.
