Firefighter dies following shooting in Wisconsin

Appleton Police Chief Todd Thomas said that Appleton fire and police personnel responded to the bus terminal Wednesday at about 5:30 p.m.to assist a 47-year-old male who was arriving on a bus from out of the area.

"It sounded like real loud firecrackers, like consistent 'pow pow pow, ' and I was thinking it was too loud for fireworks, so I looked out the window", Appleton resident Danielle Morris told the Press-Gazette.

Police shot the man, who was transported to a local hospital where he died.

Appleton police say the firefighter and an officer were among four people who were shot near the city transit center Wednesday evening.

Cash said it was disheartening that this happened during National Police Week, when the nation recognizes the sacrifices of officers. Representatives of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association responded to the scene, executive director Jim Palmer said. While they were treating the person, "the incident escalated into shots being fired". The Appleton Fire Department, with permission from the Lundgaard family, has set up a donation page in his honor on GoFundMe. So we're just happy we could get them there and get them the medical attention they needed, ' Cash said. Said there is 'no ongoing threat to the community'. I heard it again.

The 14-year veteran of the Appleton Fire Department died after he was rushed to a local hospital, the department said in a statement posted to Facebook.
