Hundreds appear at vigil for 4 shooting victims
WESTON, Wis. — Hundreds of people gathered in the rain to pay their respects to the four victims fatally shot in a several northern Wisconsin communities last week.
Organizers say the candlelight vigil Sunday was a chance to show support for the families of the three women and one man who lost their lives in Wednesday’s violence.
Four balloons were released — one pink for Sara Quirt Sann, two red for Marathon Savings Bank employees Dianne Look and Karen Barclay and one blue for Everest Metro Detective Jason Weiland.
WAOW-TV reported Everest Metro Chief Wally Sparks thanked those gathered for their support. Sparks says it’s a difficult time for everyone, including the suspect’s family.
Organizer Brandi Bradford says it’s important for the communities to stand together as one.
