Badger Guns suicide

I've been following Badger Guns for a while now and caught this from a few days ago:
WITI-TV, WEST MILWAUKEE - The West Milwaukee Police Department is investigating a shooting death at Badger Gun. Investigators say a man was using the gun range when he was shot.

Police don't believe there was any foul play involved in this shooting. West Milwaukee Police Chief Dennis Nasci says, "It is not a suspicious death. We're investigating it as an accident of sorts, but we can't make a call on it until we get the medical investigator on scene."

Police say they're reviewing surveillance video from inside the shooting range.

The Medical Examiners office says initial reports indicate a possible suicide.

And Man Shot, Killed at Badger Guns
No indication of the person and I searched for more details but came up blank. I didn't do this for morbid reasons, but Badger Guns is a news item that Kurt Hofmann at Armed and Safe - Badger Guns and I have looked at for a while.

Our thoughts and prayers are with this victim's family.

This comes on the same day that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel gave another swipe at Badgers because the straw purchase bill died in the Wisconsin Legislature. Not every bill became state law
