How to protect yourself from outdoor shooting ranges

WASHINGTON — Wisconsin police have fired at least three shots at an outdoor shooting range, but police are still investigating whether the suspect fired at police.

Authorities say a group of men, including one woman, were trying to access the range when a gunman opened fire at about 4:20 p.m.


Police say the suspect is described as a white male in his 20s, about 6 feet tall, weighing about 175 pounds with short black hair and blue eyes.

He was wearing a blue or gray camouflage jacket with a green, brown or brown-colored vest, a dark green or black vest, black gloves, a black hat and a black ski mask.

The group was stopped at the entrance to the range by a man who saw them and fired at them.

The suspect was struck in the arm and suffered a graze wound to his torso.

Police say one of the injured men was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.

Another man was taken into custody at the scene, but the suspect has not been found.

WISN-TV reported Sunday that a man in his 40s had been at the range for a while, but he has not yet been identified.

In a press conference Monday afternoon, Wisconsin police spokesman Sgt. Bill Gage said the shooting was “not related to the recent shootings at a gun range in Wisconsin” and that investigators were trying “to figure out who did this.”

He said the investigation is ongoing.
