Suspect, four others wounded in Madison office shooting in Wisconsin

Four people were wounded in an office shooting in Wisconsin on Wednesday, according to reports.

Emergency responders descended on a commercial building in Middleton just outside of Madison, which houses Esker Software and WTS Paradigm, at around 10:30 a.m. following the incident.

“It appears the situation is stable now,” City of Middleton Administrator Mike Davis said, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. “The bad news is that there were four injured by the suspect.”

Davis said that the suspect in the shooting was critically injured and taken to an area hospital, as well as the four victims.

The Middleton Police Department issued an alert shortly after the reports advising people in area buildings to stay inside and lock the doors.

One woman being assisted out of an area building was screaming, saying it was “a devastating loss,” according to Wisconsin State Journal reporter Dean Mosiman.

Andrew King, an employee at an area building, said he saw a man with a handgun going inside another building.

“I saw a dude walking with a gun inside the building,” King said, according to the news outlet.

“He was just walking with it, and I didn’t see any shooting.”

Members of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also responded to the scene.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said in a tweet: “We are closely following this situation. Our thanks goes out to first responders on the scene.”

Middleton Mayor Gurdip Brar told the State Journal: “My heart goes out to the families of anyone who may have been hurt…The city will do everything we can to help them in this situation.”

Middleton is about 90 miles west of Milwaukee.
