Autopsies to be performed on victims, shooter


by Tiffany Tarpley

Autopsies are scheduled to be performed Monday on the victims of the shooting as well as the shooter. A representative with the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office told CBS 58 they have all seven bodies.

Three adult male victims who survived the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek are being treated at Froedtert Hospital with critical injuries. One of the victims being treated at the hospital is an Oak Creek police officer.

According to Froedtert's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Lee Biblo, one of the victims has gunshot wounds to his abdomen and chest, another has injuries to his extremities and face and the other has a wound to the neck.

"This is consistent with the many drills that we run to be prepared for mass casualty situations as a level one trauma center," Biblo explained. "Caring for three patients with gunshot wounds at a single point in time is unfortunately not uncommon."

Biblo said they often train with local emergency response teams to prepare for situations like the mass shooting.
