April 13th 2017-Two men from the Wausau area were arrested at Appleton East High School. A school resource officer noticed Tou Thao, and Blong Vang, in the hallway after school, and they couldn't give a consistent answer about why they were there. According to court documents, the men from the Wausau area traveled to the school to pick up a female student who was dating Vang, so the two could attend a wedding over that weekend, but prosecutors say they also had plans to potentially settle a score. There was a bullying issue, and there was an intent to address that with the person that he viewed as causing that issue. Police found two guns during a search of their car in the school parking lot -- one in the back seat and another in the trunk. The gun in the back seat was loaded. The guns were not brought into the school.
