SkyWarn13 Weather Alert: Heavy accumulations of wet snow likely for the Northern Chippewa Valley

Rice Lake Vigil

All funeral services have been held for the six victims of the Sawyer County shooting spree, but support continues to pour out of the communities that mourn their loss.

Last night, people gathered in Rice Lake to honor the deer hunters who lost their lives on the second day of Wisconsin's nine day hunting season.

The only two survivors of the shooting joined with about 900 well-wishers who attended a prayer service at Rice Lake High School.

Lauren Hesebeck and Terry Willers were both released from the hospital in the week that followed the incident.

All eight victims were from Barron County, in the Rice Lake area.

Tuesday's service was organized by local clergy members.
