Wisconsin retiree charged in shooting of Amtrak conductor

19 May 2017

79-year-old Edward Klein of West Allis appeared in bond court Friday morning, May 19th where bond was set at $1.5 million.

He is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to the sheriff's office. He then boarded a Chicago-bound train.

Prosecutors say a retired federal law enforcement agent told investigators he shot an Amtrak train conductor because he wasn't allowed to de-board in suburban Chicago. The train stopped at the downtown Naperville train station about 4:45 p.m. and some passengers got off.

Unaffordable health care for many
ME has been held up as an example of a state that had a high-risk pool that worked, prior to enactment of the ACA. Even the picture of the current health law isn't as bad as Trump tried to paint it, though.

Prosecutors said Klein tried to get off the train after the train doors closed. The conductor was shot in the stomach.

Police said Klein, who fired from inside the train at the conductor on the platform, was restrained by other passengers on the train until police arrived.

Although he had a clean record, prosecutors said newspaper clippings in his apartment indicated he has a fascination with police-involved shootings.

DuPage County State's Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Naperville Chief of Police Robert Marshall announced Friday that charges have been filed against a Wisconsin man for allegedly shooting an Amtrak conductor in Naperville on Tuesday.

Klein will be back in court in Wheaton on June 12th.

State's attorney's office spokesman Paul Darrah said Klein formerly worked for the Federal Protective Services, a branch of Homeland Security that proved security for federal facilities.
