Girl, 11, killed in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, shooting and boy, 15, arrested as victim's family say they're 'devastated'

A DEVASTATED family is mourning the death of their 11-year-old daughter, who was killed in a shooting in Wisconsin.

Carolanah Schenk was killed in a shooting in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night, as authorities arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the killing.

Schenk, a sixth-grader at Forest Edge Elementary School in the Oregon School District, died at a local hospital after being shot at a two-story duplex in Fitchburg.

According to police, a 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the killing.

The boy, who remains unnamed, is being held in the Dane County Jail and is facing first-degree reckless homicide charges.

"Our daughter loved playing video games with her brothers and father. She loved arts and crafts, loved dogs, and enjoyed posting funny pictures, and videos of herself and others on TikTok and Instagram," Schenk's family said in a statement.

"Our daughter meant the world to us, and this has devastated our family.

Oregon School District superintendent Dr Lesie Bergstrom sent a letter out to all families Wednesday, saying its District Crisis Response Team is working to provide support for the community.

“Our thoughts and condolences are with Carolanah’s family and all in our school community who are impacted by this tragedy,” Bergstrom said.

The Boys and Girls Club of Dane County started a GoFundMe Wednesday to help contribute to Carolanah’s funeral costs.
