'The Appleton Fire Department is saddened to announce the line of duty death of a 14-year veteran of the fire department, ' a spokesperson said in a statement. CBS Green Bay affiliate WFRV-TV reports that Lundgaard war married and a father of three children. The Appleton Fire Department, with permission from the Lundgaard family, has set up a donation page in his honor on GoFundMe.

Police shot the man, who was transported to a local hospital where he died. The police officer was released from the hospital Friday and the female is in stable condition.

A woman who lives across the street from the bus station told the news station that she heard the gunshots.

Cash said it was disheartening that this happened during National Police Week, when the nation recognizes the sacrifices of officers.
