Hunter goes berserk

The week's news at a glance.

Birchwood, Wis.

A deer hunter shot and killed six people this week, including a father and his 20-year-old son, in the first hours of deer-hunting season in Wisconsin. Two others were wounded. The man opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle after a group of hunters spotted him hunting from a perch in a tree on private land, and asked him to leave. The suspect was “sniping” at the victims, said Sawyer County Chief Deputy Tim Zeigle, “chasing after them and killing them.” Police later arrested Chai Vang, 36, as he emerged from the woods, out of ammunition. “It’s absolutely nuts,” said Zeigle. “Why?” Vang, a Laotian immigrant, told police the other hunters showered him with racial insults, and shot at him first.
