According to police, a Wisconsin man allegedly went on a shooting rampage that lasted hours. In the end, his wife’s divorce lawyer and two of her co-workers were dead.
Police believe that on Wednesday, Nengmy Vang went on a killing spree, shooting multiple people in Rothschild. It finally ended when local police shot and killed Vang. The suspect’s wife was not injured in the shooting spree.
According to police reports, the gunfire began after the suspect got into a dispute with his wife Naly Vang. It happened Wednesday around noon at a Marathon Savings Bank. That’s where Vang shot and killed 67-year-old Dianne Look and 62-year-old Karen Barclay, his wife’s co-workers.
The third victim of Vang’s shooting spree was Sarah Quirt Sann. She was the lawyer who was representing Naly Vang in the couple’s divorce case. Their case began in 2015. A pre-trial hearing was scheduled for next month.
Sann, 43, was killed next at her office, before Vang allegedly barricaded himself from police at his apartment and fatally shot Everest detective Jason Weiland, 40.
Vang, who was identified by local media but not police, was shot by officers, and was in unknown condition at a local hospital.
After the violence, it emerged that in addition to the divorce, Vang had a history of financial problems, and had been sued five times by lenders as well as having his wages garnished three times.
The day before the shootings, he received a notice that he had to repay $9,370 to a credit union.
His brother Vajloogzeb Vaj said Vang had multiple guns that he used to hunt deer and squirrels.
Court records seen by the Wausa Daily Herald said the Vangs’ divorce was contested, with Naly Vang requesting sole custody over the two of their six children who are still minors.
