An officer arrived on scene. He engaged an active shooter. The officer was shot multiple times. He has been transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive. The shooter was put down.
Oak Creek, Wisc. police spokesman Bradley Wentlandt • Regarding the latest on the Sikh temple shooting outside of Milwaukee. It’s unclear if “put down” means the shooter was killed, nor is it clear if there is more than one shooter. At least 10-12 ambulances are on the scene, though police are not confirming the number of people injured, initially reported as four.

UPDATE: “I do not have a victim count. I do not have a suspect count,” Oak Creek Patch quotes Wentlandt as saying. Police scanner reports suggest as many as 20 have been shot, according to Patch’s article. (more here)

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker • Commenting on what he perceives as weak strategy from Mitt Romney’s campaign — tearing-down President Obama instead of promoting himself — during a discussion with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. Walker also rebutted the popular claim that Mitt Romney is disconnected from “normal” people, and cannot relate to everyday struggles. “When he was with Paul Ryan and I in Jamesville a few weeks ago, he was great,” said Walker, adding, “He relates to people well, relates to small-business owners well. I would like to see more of that.”  source (viafollow)

I don’t think it would have made the difference. But it’s kind of like Thanksgiving at your in-laws. If you go, it doesn’t guarantee it’s going to be fun, but if you don’t go, there’s going to be hell to pay.

What would you do if somebody walked up and asked, “Can I slap you?” Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett found himself in just such an unusual situation after wrapping up his concession speech following Tuesday night’s recall elections. According to reports, Barrett offered the woman a hug instead, and was shocked when she slapped him a few moments later. (edit to make headline slightly more accurate; thanks pbump for that) source
