A man who died after a weekend shooting at a downtown Appleton bar has been identified as 33-year-old Jimmie Sanders of Milwaukee.
Sanders was shot by a police officer at Jack’s Apple Pub, at the corner of College Avenue and State Street, around 1 a.m. Sunday. Gunshots were fired in the bar, before Lieutenant Jay Steinke shot Sanders.
Steinke was placed on an administrative assignment, until the investigation is complete. That’s a typical move when there’s a police shooting. The officer who was with Steinke is also on an administrative assignment, until he’s interviewed.
