Police and fire departments from around the area along with local residents lined the overpasses along Interstate 41 this morning as a processional bringing the body of a fallen Appleton firefighter made its way back to the Fox Valley from Milwaukee. The 14-year veteran of the fire department died at a hospital Wednesday night after being shot while on the scene of a medical emergency in the city around 5:30 pm Wednesday. Three others were shot, including an Appleton Police officer. The procession made its way through the Fond du Lac area close to mid-day today, as it went from the Milwaukee Medical Examiner’s Office to the Brettschneider-Trettin-Nickel Funeral Chapel in Appleton.
