After initially keeping the identity of the Wausau attacker as a secret, police officials have finally revealed the identity of the quadruple Wisconsin shooting suspect’s identity public. Initially his identity was kept under wrap while he was admitted to a hospital after sustaining injuries. Nengmy Vang, in the meantime is said to be behind shooting spree that killed four people including a police officer, two female bank employees and a lawyer who was representing his wife in a divorce case.
The killing almost went unreported as it happened at the time when a terrorist rammed his vehicle into unsuspecting people walking on London’s Westminster Bridge.
Reports suggest that the killer who shot down the four people was 45-year old Nengmy Vang. A report in the HBC Hmong Broadcasting Company in Minnesota said that the killer was fighting a divorce case in which his wife was represented by one of the victims, lawyer Sara Quirt Sann.
As far as the victims of the mindless shooting are concerned, the Department of Justice identified them as officer Jason Weiland, bank employees Dianne Look and Karen Barclay, and Quirt Sann.
A report in the Madison claims that Quirt Sann was actually fighting the case of his wife’s divorce. The court records make it clear that the couple had a final pre-trial scheduled for April 28, 2017 and a contested divorce hearing scheduled for June 8. In October, court records show, a guardian ad litem was appointed in the high conflict divorce.
A report in the Wisconsin Public Radio said that Quirt Sann’s husband, Scott Sann, is encouraging the community to come together to find strength and healing. Sann is the superintendent at Greenwood Hills Country Club in Wausau. In a letter posted on the golf course’s Facebook page, Sann said the community must not give in to hate and anger and make judgments based on gender, race or religion. Sann said his wife fought for those who needed representation. Quirt Sann sometimes represented children as a guardian in divorce and child support cases.
Now it is clear that the killer was arrested by police after he shot two people at a bank, Sann and a detective. The three shootings progressed from the bank in Rothschild to the law office in Schofield and then Vang’s apartment Weston.
