Shocked residents of Crandon comfort each other. “Any time that you can release the tears and be able to grieve out loud and share your anger and things, I think it’s part of the healing process,” said the Rev. Bill Farr, whose son grew up hunting and fishing with the gunman and two of the victims. (Andy Manis / Associated Press)
Crandon residents embrace after the shooting. “Everyone is reeling,” said Richard Peters, superintendent of the Crandon School District, who knew the shooting victims. “Crandon is small-town America, a close-knit community. No one envisaged anyone in this community would do something like this. We all knew the kids, and they all knew us.” (Morry Gash / Associated Press)
