Police received a call just before 4 p.m. local time of an armed student at Marinette High School. Parents were asked to respond to the county courthouse to receive information on their children.

Given the time of this ‘breaking news’ unfolding; am wondering, what students/faculty are in this classroom after school hours. Special function going on; or is this just late making into breaking news.

"Given the time of this ‘breaking news’ unfolding; am wondering, what students/faculty are in this classroom after school hours. Special function going on; or is this just late making into breaking news."

I think it's probably a little of both, plus you have to account for the 1-hour time difference from EST. I read in another story that the police received the first 911 call at 4:00pm local time. Which might be the normal end of day, or perhaps it's some kind of extra-curricular program, which wouldn't be unusual.

Once again a criminal breaks the laws of physics. How is it, that the criminally insane are so adept at finding loopholes in the laws of physics?

Lots that goes on after school. My daughter is at her school right now rehearsing for a play, there are sports events, practices, etc. Made my heart skip a beat, as we live in WI.

Prayers for a safe resolution.

face book traffic says....”is a kid named sam as the gunman shot and killed his teacher they are shuffling students to the court house right now.”

Another states the “a teacher was shot.”

Keep in mind this is facebook “rumors” and needs verification.

Well, since your post added nothing to the thread, I suppose it’s appropriate that you posted it twice.

This is a different time. We don’t wait for mass, Marxstream media to verify things. The “jet plane” seen off Santa Catalina Island should be a reminder.

Mikel Lauber (WSAW NewsChannel 7) is tweeting that there are 23 students being held, and that a teacher is acting as an intermediary between the police and the hostage-taker.

Thanks for the link. The audio is so bad, I can’t make out anything the guy is saying. His demeanor seems awfully cavalier giving the gravity of the situation, but then again, maybe it’s because I can’t hear anything.

I hear you, but come on, what have our lives been reduced to? Live and die by every second? Be prepared and not let the emotions of something control your thoughts.

Worry about what you can control and don’t worry about what you can not control.

Prayers are the best we can do for now. Anything else is a waste of time and time we should be praying instead.

The situation began at 3:10 PM in Marinette. A teacher in choir area, notified the principal. The principal evacuated the rest of the school and closed it down. the police and fire deptartments arrived. Marinette is a small city in northeastern wisconsin across the river is Menominee, Michigan.

Marinette high school is on the south side of the town, it is approximately 1 mile from the hospital. It is a large complex, so it is understandable that the building being evacauted than the fire department being called. Keep inmind the police department is within a mile of the school.

The news release was encouraging parents, friends and family to report to the court house around 3:50. That may be the reason for the confusion. The media was not informed until 3:50. I believe more police arrived from other communities to assist with the situation.

At 6:50 there was a report made on Fox11 news but it was garbled and not undertandable. I will post when I find out more.

In the sense there are no CCWs in WI, it’s pretty much a gun free state.

We used to live across the river in Menominee, MI, about 3 miles away from the high school location. (We moved away 22 years ago.) My younger daughter was born in Marinette. I used to drive all over that community and I can not remember the Marinette High School at all! It’s making me feel old. I pray that there is a good outcome to this.
