Gunman killed, three injured in workplace shooting near Madison


Three people were shot by a gunman who was shot and killed by police following a shooting at an office building near Madison on Wednesday.

Just before 10:30 a.m, a shooting occurred at WTS Paradigm, a software company located in Middleton.

Not many details about the shooting have been released, but Middleton’s police chief says the suspect was shot by responding officers and later died at the hospital.

Three victims were also taken to a Madison hospital.

An employee at a business in the same building described the scary scene: 

“We were just standing there, watching as all these police officers were coming in, and then a couple of our co-workers were in the back stairwell and they’re like, ‘there’s blood all over the back sidewalk,” recalled Marlene Mecum. “We locked everything up. We kept everybody in the area. We started notifying family.”

Police have not yet released the names of the suspect or victims.
