Kylee Jones of Shawano told WFRV that her son has been bullied consistently since middle school. "He shouldn't have to even deal with it. I don't think he should have to come to me every day and say 'well, it happened again'," she said. "I need to know that not just my kids are safe but all the kids are safe. You know, like this shouldn't be happening."
18-year-old Jakob Wagner, the suspected gunman at the Antigo prom shooting, died at the hospital on Sunday, after police patrolling the school open-fired on him when they heard his shots. Two students were struck by the gunfire but suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Those that knew Jakob Wagner say he was a victim of bullying at school. Jones told WFRV she can see how a kid who was bullied would be driven to do something like the incident at the Antigo prom. In reference to the bullying her son has suffered, she said, "...thank God my son is strong and I appreciate him being strong. I give him so much credit."
