ANTIGO - Police Chief Eric Roller keeps his emotions pretty well in check. But as the Antigo Police Department break room fills with food and thank-you cards, Roller cracks—just a bit.
"Seeing that and seeing all the responses on Facebook, I mean, that's the part that chokes you up," Roller said in his office Thursday afternoon.
Just five days earlier, essentially the entire Antigo police force (and many other departments across northern Wisconsin) scrambled to stop a teenager from killing anyone at the high school's prom. Two party-goers were hurt, and the 18-year-old shooter, Jakob Wagner, was killed, but thanks to officers Andy Hopfensperger and Ryan Bula already at the scene, the threat ended there. Hopfensperger shot Wagner "multiple times,"according to court documents released earlier this week.
