Officer offers life-saving tips for surviving mass shooting

It’s not if another mass shooting will occur in Kenosha.

It’s when.

That’s according to Kenosha Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit officer Jeff Wamboldt, who offered lifesaving tips for surviving an attack Wednesday evening.

“We had an active shooter a long time ago,” Wamboldt said. “It has happened here. If it happened once, it can happen again, and we know what’s been going on in the country.”

Wamboldt was referring to Aug. 10, 1993, when a shooting left three dead, one injured and countless lives forever changed.

On that sunny afternoon, 26-year-old Dion Terres dressed in jungle fatigues, walked into the McDonald’s restaurant at 75th Street and Pershing Boulevard and fired random shots from a .44 Magnum revolver, killing two customers and wounding a third.

Then Terres opened his mouth, pointed the gun inside and took his own life.

‘Here I am, 26, with no friends, no job, no girlfriend’: Shooter’s manifesto offers clues to 2015 Oregon college rampage

Laurel Harper remembered her 26-year-old son as perpetually mad at the world.

“I mean, he was born angry, pretty much,” said the mother. “I mean, even the doctor said this is one angry baby.”

At age 5, he tried to jump out of her moving car, she said. In his later years, he was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which can limit social development and lead to behavioral meltdowns. He took medications but by age 18 gave them up because of side effects.

He continued to rage. “I would just try to, try to, like, defuse,” she said. “And there was one time when he pointed a shotgun at me.”

During his opening remarks for the sentencing phase of his trial, Dylann Roof told the nine white and three black jurors gathered together at the Federal District Court in Charleston, South Carolina that he was perfectly sane. “There’s nothing wrong with me psychologically,” said Roof, who was convicted by the same jury found him guilty of all 33 charges levied against him. Roof murdered nine people at the city’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in the summer of 2015.

Roof, who expressed more concern with how others perceive his psychological wellness than with his guilt or sentencing, chose to represent himself during the sentencing phase on Wednesday. He initially tried to do the same during the trial phase but later changed his mind. “The point is that I’m
