Counselors help students deal with ND killings

Posted: Updated:

Counselors are helping students in two North Dakota communities cope with the weekend slayings of 3 children and their grandmother in New Town.

Counselors have been on hand at all three schools in New Town, where the Sunday shootings happened in a residential neighborhood in the northwestern community. High School Principal John Gartner tells The Dickinson Press that the mood is "very somber."

Counselors also have been working with students in the northeastern community of Minto, where the three children had lived as recently as a month earlier.

Authorities identified the victims as 64-year-old Martha Johnson and 3 of her grandchildren: 13-year-old Benjamin Schuster, 10-year-old Julia Schuster and 6-year-old Luke Schuster. A man who killed himself the same day as the shootings has been described as a person of interest.
