The perpetrator, 20-year-old Tyler Peterson, who was a full-time deputy in the Forest County Sheriff's Department and a part-time officer at the Crandon Police Department, shot and killed six people and critically injured a seventh before committing suicide. One of the victims, 18-year-old Jordanne Michele Murray, was Peterson's former girlfriend, and it was believed the dispute within the apartment motivated the shooting.

Tyler James Peterson, a 20-year-old full-time deputy in the Forest County Sheriff's Department and a part-time police officer at the Crandon Police Department, who was not on duty, entered an apartment complex where a homecoming party was held at approximately 2:45 a.m. CDT, and shot at seven people, ages 14 to 20, killing six of them and wounding the seventh. The gunman was later killed, initially believed to have been killed by a police sniper, but it was later discovered that he committed suicide by multiple gunshots, with the third shot being the fatal one. Police have determined that approximately 30 rounds were fired throughout the duration of the shooting.
All seven victims were either students or recent graduates of Crandon High School. The seventh victim, Charles Neitzel, played dead after being shot three times and survived, despite being critically injured.

Among the dead were:

•Jordanne Michele Murray, 18
•Katrina Lee McCorkle, 18
•Lianna Faye Thomas, 17
•Bradley Steven Schultz, 20
•Aaron Edward Smith, 20
•Lindsey Lou Stahl, 14
