Bodycam footage shows exchange between Middleton shooter, officers

MIDDLETON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Department of Justice released body camera footage from Sept. 19, the day of the WTS Paradigm shooting on. 

The videos shows Middleton police officers and Dane County deputies responding to reports of an active shooter incident at the Middleton office building.

In the video, you can hear a member of law enforcement say, "he's still alive! He's still out there sitting up shooting!"

Officers tell 43-year-old Anthony Tong, to lower his weapon and surrender. When he refused, officers shot and killed him. 

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Oznne cleared two Dane County sheriff's deputies and two Middleton police officers for fatally shooting Tong. 

"Responding to an active shooter who is armed and is not responding to verbal commands to drop his weapon, gives law enforcement really no other option than to use deadly force as well," Ozanne said.
