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.
