A shooting in a house in southern Wisconsin left six people dead and one injured, the police chief of the city of Delavan said. Police responding to a report of shots fired found six people dead inside a house in this southern Wisconsin city, Chief Tim O'Neill said. A child who had been shot in the chest was found in a car outside the house, he said.
Ho boy. When DullLivin Wisconsin breaks out of it's doldrums, it does it big time. We're plastered on the Trib, Sun Times, AP, you name it. And we're not used to the attention.
The coverage is intense but spasmodic. There is an interview with a man walking by the building on his way to church. There is a quote from a guy who lives next door. (He never heard any shots.) Lots of publications are pushing the same data back and forth to make it look different.
If I drive to town on county O I usually go right by the house. It's one of those with several cars in various conditions parked in the yard, and evidence that lots of people live there. I still wonder how anyone could off 6 people.
And the worst part is that my wife is staying with some friends just around the corner celebrating her birthday. (After a few beers, celebrating your birthday, it makes sense to stay there overnight instead of driving.) I'll be glad when she's home.
When we lived in Chicago, it didn't bother me if some guy got blown away just down the alley, that was part and parcel of life. Out here it's different. It shouldn't happen.
