Federal prosecutors will not seek additional charges against U.P. gunman

by

UNDATED (WSAU) Federal prosecutors say they will not seek more charges against Scott Johnson, who was convicted of killing three teens in a rampage on the Wisconsin-Michigan border.

The 39-year-old Johnson was sentenced in a state court earlier this year to life in prison with no chance of parole. He molested a woman at a swimming hole west of Niagara last July – and then he returned the next day and shot at nine teens swimming in the Menominee River. A federal conviction might have given Johnson the death penalty – even though Wisconsin does not have capital punishment for state convictions.

Survivor Daniel Gordon said F-B-I investigators met with him and the victims’ families last week, and said there would be no federal charges. The U-S Attorney’s office made the decision public yesterday.
