Alison Northcott explores how that's changed."One of her friends used to say it's easier to describe a whirlwind than it is to describe Anne-Marie," Edward said in a recent interview at Montreal's Place du 6-Décembre-1989, a memorial park dedicated to his younger sister and the other victims of the Montreal Massacre.

'A superintendent's worst nightmare'

According to emergency radio traffic, the first Waukesha Fire Department units at the scene reported to dispatchers that the patient was conscious, alert and breathing. A fire commander at the scene told other arriving fire/EMS crews that the patient sustained "relatively minor wounds" and that no additional emergency responders were needed.

Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly called it a "terrifying day."

But he added that he is proud of how the school district, police department and fire department responded.
