Me-Wuk man from Tuolumne aids Minnesota tribe
- People at a Minnesota American Indian reservation still fear more violence two weeks after a 16-year-old went on a shooting spree and killed nine people and then himself.
"It's a common response, to be afraid more violence is going to happen," said Frank Canizales, a former Tuolumne County resident who is part of a federal response team deployed to the disaster.
"Fear is a healthy response when something like this happens," he said.
Jeff Weise killed nine people before killing himself. Those who died included his grandfather, the grandfather's girlfriend, five Red Lake High School students, a teacher and a guard. Two other students remain hospitalized with serious injuries.
Canizales and his teammates from U.S. Indian Health Services are helping the community mourn its dead and deal with fears that the violence is not over.
