ANTIGO -- The Antigo Police Department is expected to hold a 2:00 p.m. press briefing today where we'll learn more about the weekend prom shooting that injured two students and left the shooter dead.

Investigators did not say whether they believe the two students were specifically targeted or discuss a possible motive for the shooting. But a school administrator said it appeared that the gunman — identified by police as Jakob E. Wagner — intended to go into the dance and start shooting randomly.

The two prom-goers who were wounded were shot as the exited the building, according to Eric Roller, the chief of police in Antigo, a community of about 8,000 people roughly 150 miles north of Milwaukee.
