MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Authorities have identified four officials who shot their weapons at a gunman killed after he opened fire on his co-workers at a Wisconsin software company.
Officials say WTS Paradigm employee Anthony Tong wounded four people at the company’s Middleton headquarters Wednesday before he died in the shootout. The Middleton Police Department says two officers shot at Tong: Richard O’Connor and Tyler Loether. O’Connor has worked at the department since 1998, while Loether started in 2012.
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says two of its deputies fired their weapons in the shootout: 21-year veteran David Lambrecht and Matthew Earll, who has served there for 11 years.
The officers and deputies have been put on paid administrative leave until the official investigation is finished and the district attorney issues a ruling.
