A hospital is on lockdown after a shooting at a Wisconsin cemetery in which a gunman injured five people during a funeral, sources said.

Police are investigating the “critical incident” and say the “scene is still active following Thursday afternoon’s shooting at Graceland Cemetery in Racine.”

Racine’s police tweeted : “At 2:26 p.m., multiple shots were fired at Graceland Cemetery. There are casualties, but it is currently unknown how many. The scene is still active and under investigation.

“We will update you as more details become available.”

A family confirmed to TMJ4 News that a suspect shot and injured five people at a funeral and 12 bullet markers were seen on the ground where they had been placed by police.

The condition of the people shot is unknown.

That Dräger-Langendorf funeral home and crematorium reportedly said the funeral was for Da’Shontay L. King Sr., who was shot dead by police on March 20 after refusing to put down a gun at a traffic stop.

Racine Police had stopped the car King was driving for a firearms investigation. He got out of the vehicle and was shot when he refused to put down his gun and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokesman for nearby Ascension All Saints Hospital said the hospital is on lockdown.

It states: “The safety of our employees, patients, visitors and providers is our top priority.

“Due to an off-site situation, heightened security measures have been put in place at Ascension All Saints Hospital. Patients are still able to attend previously scheduled appointments and the emergency room is currently accepting patients.

“However, as a precaution, the number of open entrances to the hospital has been reduced and additional security checks have been implemented.”

The Racine United School District reportedly allowed Park High School kids to go home 10 minutes later than normal after police said it was safe.

A neighbor said the shooting was sporadic and a bullet hit playground equipment near where his son was playing.

It is only the latest gun incident in the United States, with 19 children and two teachers shot dead in one of the deadliest shootings in US history last week.

Another Racine resident shared TMK4 news : “When I heard it was a funeral, I thought, sir, you can’t even go to a funeral anymore. They’re shooting at 120 yards. Total disregard.”
