(Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) A veteran shot himself at the Milwaukee Veterans Affairs campus Thursday morning and was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, where he later died.
The incident happened at 8:40 a.m. in one of the VA parking lots. The man's identity was not released.
The man was a post-Vietnam era, non-combat veteran who came to one of the parking lots, pulled out a gun and shot himself. A Disabled American Veterans van driver saw the man shoot himself and immediately alerted VA police and medical staff, who provided medical care until the veteran was taken by ambulance to Froedtert, said Gary Kunich, VA Hospital spokesman.
