MILWAUKEE (AP) A 17-year-old told investigators that he fatally shot an elderly couple and was planning to cause harm at his high school in eastern Wisconsin, police said Monday.
Police officers responding to a 911 call for assistance found the bodies of the man and woman at their home in Grand Chute about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Officer Travis Waas said. He declined to release details of the call.
Waas said police arrested Alexander M. Kraus, who lives in nearby Neenah, at the couple s home. Kraus admitted that he shot the two, whom he knew, Waas said.
Kraus was being held in the Outagamie County Jail and has not yet been charged. Police said in a news release that he could be charged as an adult with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
Police have not identified the couple or their relationship to Kraus. Waas said a long gun, believed to have been used in the crime, was recovered at the home. No information has been provided on why Kraus shot the couple....
