The husband of one of the four people fatally shot as a result of an apparent domestic dispute in northern Wisconsin is encouraging the community in general to come together to find strength and healing.

Scott Sann is the husband of Sarah Quirt Sann, an attorney who court records show was representing the wife of the suspect in a divorce proceeding. Sarah Sann was killed at a law office. Two others were killed at a bank and a police detective was fatally shot outside an apartment complex.

Scott Sann is the superintendent at Greenwood Hills Country Club in Wausau. In a letter posted on the golf course's Facebook page, Sann says the community must not give in to hate and anger and make judgments based on gender, race or religion.

Sann says his wife, as an attorney, fought for those who needed representation. Quirt Sann sometimes represented children as a guardian in divorce and child support cases.

The suspect in a Wisconsin shooting spree that left four people dead has been identified, and court records show one of the victims was his wife's divorce lawyer.

A person close to the investigation identified the suspect Friday as 45-year old Nengmy (NING' - my) Vang. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak ahead of authorities officially identifying Vang.

Investigators said Vang had a domestic incident with his wife on Wednesday. They are going through a divorce.

Authorities identified one of those killed as attorney Sarah H. Quirt Sann. According to court records, she was representing Vang's wife in a divorce.

Vang was captured after authorities say he shot two people at a bank, Sann and a detective.

Vang's attorney didn't return messages.
