A poten­tial­ly trag­ic sit­u­a­tion unfold­ed near Mount Horeb Mid­dle School on Wednes­day, May 1st, 2024. Law enforce­ment offi­cials respond­ed swift­ly to reports of an armed indi­vid­ual out­side the school at approx­i­mate­ly 11:30 AM.

Accord­ing to the Wis­con­sin Depart­ment of Jus­tice (DOJ), the sus­pect, a 14-year-old, was con­front­ed by police out­side the school perimeter. 

Thank­ful­ly, no stu­dents or staff were injured dur­ing the inci­dent. The DOJ con­firmed that police used dead­ly force, result­ing in the sus­pec­t’s death.

The Mount Horeb Area School Dis­trict pri­or­i­tized stu­dent safe­ty through­out the event. In a state­ment to the com­mu­ni­ty, the dis­trict assured fam­i­lies that the sus­pect “did not breach the entry­way” of the mid­dle school.

Stu­dents were dis­missed ear­ly and offered coun­sel­ing sup­port to address any emo­tion­al distress.
