    According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, witnesses say that as many as 30 people may have been shot. CNN reports that a gunman was killed by a police officer. 6 other people have also been confirmed dead, the AP reported.
    Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt said he doesn't know the total number of victims involved. Police said they did not believe there was a second shooter.


    I said earlier, about 10:25 am, police dispatch received multiple 9/11 calls for a shooting. 20 year law enforcement veteran was the first person on the scene. He engaged an active shooter outside the temple. Multiple rounds were exchanged, officer was shot multiple times. He is in surgery, condition unknown. The shooter was also shot. He is down on the scene and presumed deceased. Tactical officers have made multiple runs through the facility. The best information we have now. Two individuals were transported from the scene for gunshot wounds. One being the officer, one being a civilian.

    According to one report I read, the shooter (or at least one shooter) was "put down." An interesting choice of words, but that's what the article said. I believe he was shot by the officer currently in the hospital.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
