Attorney: Man killed in Neenah standoff was hostage
NEENAH, Wis. (AP — An attorney says the man killed during a standoff at a motorcycle shop in Wisconsin was a hostage who died while fleeing the gunman.
Milwaukee lawyer Cole J. White, who says he is representing the family, on Sunday identified the dead man as 60-year-old Michael Funk of Neenah. White says he got the identification from state authorities and from Funk’s wife.
Police say officers fired at a man who did not drop a weapon after leaving the building, but that he also may have been shot at from inside the building. Police have not announced the name of the man.
Shots were reported at Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah Saturday, along with a report that hostages had been taken. A man was taken into custody after hours of negotiations.
