About Jeff Weise

  • Jeffrey James Weise (August 8, 1988 – March 21, 2005) was an American teenage mass murderer and spree killer, who was a student at Red Lake Senior High School in Red Lake, Minnesota, located on the reservation of the Ojibwe people.
  • He murdered nine people in a shooting spree on March 21, 2005.
  • He killed his grandfather and his grandfather's companion before going to the reservation high school, where he murdered seven more people and wounded five others.
  • He committed suicide before being captured by the police.
  • Weise struggled in school due to frequent relocations, bullying, disruptions in his personal life and truancy.
  • In May and June 2004, Weise tried twice to commit suicide and was briefly hospitalized.
  • He was under treatment for depression, and had been prescribed Prozac as an anti-depressant.
  • His case revived the public discussion about the use of Prozac for children and adolescents; the US Food and Drug Administration had published a warning about it in October 2004 as a factor in increased suicides and violence among youths.
