Wisconsin Shooting Leaves 4 Dead, 1 Injured on Bridge

A Wisconsin shooting left four people dead and one injured over the weekend when a man opened fire on a bridge in what police are calling a random shooting, The Associated Press reported.

The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. Sunday in Menasha on the Fox Cities Trestle Trail bridge that spans Little Lake Butte des Morts, according to Menasha police.

Police Chief Tim Styka said the shooter was among those who died. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital.

"At this point we do not believe there is any other threat to the community," Styka said. "We think this was a random act. It does not appear that anyone was targeted."

No responding officer fired their weapons, he added.

The surviving victim underwent surgery at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah. Hospital spokeswoman Megan Mulholland said the woman in her 30s was in critical condition Monday.

Menasha City Council President James Taylor said violence is uncommon in his community, about 100 miles north of Milwaukee.

"Around the country every day it seems to happen somewhere or every other day. I never ever thought I'd be standing here talking about this and having such a situation like this happen in our community," Taylor said.

About 30 officers from Menasha and surrounding communities responded to the scene, Styka said. Police flooded both ends of the bridge that connects Menasha with the Town of Menasha.
