Four people are dead – including the suspected shooter – in what Mesasha police are calling a random shooting Sunday night. Police Chief Tim Styka said officers responded to the Trestle Trail bridge over Little Lake Butte des Morts at around 7:00, after calls reporting a shooter. Styka said “multiple victims” were found on the bridge, including a person officers believed was the shooter. One report said the shooter was a male. A fifth person was wounded.
Police believe the shooting was random, and that no one was specifically targeted. Styka said about 30 officers were on the scene in a matter of minutes after a report of an “active shooter” was issued. The officers were from several agencies, and none fired their weapons. Witnesses said they heard up to a dozen shots, and saw people running in numerous directions. Styka said no one was specifically targeted. The lone survivor is said to be a woman in her 30’s. Menasha Police expect to say more at a news conference on Monday.
