Procession for Fallen Appleton Firefighter Passes Through Area

Firefighter shot dead in Appleton, Wisconsin: Mitch Lundgaard killed during emergency call in Wisconsin

The firefighter died after he was rushed to a local hospital, the department said in a statement posted to Facebook. The officer remains in a local hospital where he is recovering, police said.

Four people were struck, including a firefighter and police officer.

It's believed the same man who called 911 for medical attention opened fire at the emergency responders. "While 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. Appleton Officer Meghan Cash said there was no ongoing threat to the community, but she didn't say if anyone was in custody. I heard it again.

Firefighter Mitch Lundgaard was a 14-year veteran of the Appleton Fire Department, Appleton Fire Chief Jeremy Hansen said at a press conference Thursday.

Tori Mourning, a witness, told the ABC affiliate that at first it sounded like a lawnmower backfiring. "And another shot was sacked and there was another male and he went down and I saw the shooter flee", Mourning told local news station WBAY-TV. Representatives of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association responded to the scene, executive director Jim Palmer said.

"I screamed through my house that those are gunfire and everyone get down", Mourning said, "So I ran, and by the time I got to the top of my house to the bottom my kids all ducked down".

A long line of emergency vehicles escorted Lundgaard's body from a medical examiner's office in Milwaukee back to Appleton on Thursday.

The procession carrying the Appleton Firefighter passed through Allenton at 11:59 a.m.

The procession route traveled east along College Avenue through downtown Appleton, turns north on Drew Street, past Fire Station 1, then west on Hancock Street and south on Oneida Street to Brettschneider-Trettin-Nickel Funeral Chapel.

Firefighters stood silently at the medical examiner's office as the procession began, just as they had when the body arrived in a flag-draped casket overnight.
