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.

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.
