Police say the shooting happened last night at the end of the Fox Cities Trestle Trail bridge. It’s a recreational bridge used year-round by about a thousand people a day. The survivor is listed in critical condition this morning. The police chief says the male shooter was among those who died, and called it a “random act.” More on this story


Roenicke, you’re out!: The Brewers are making a change in the dugout. After a rough start to the season, the team fired manager Ron Roenicke yesterday. The Brewers are the worst team in the majors right now with a 7-18 record. A press conference is scheduled for the morning to announce his replacement. But FOX Sports says former Brewer and Whitefish-native Craig Counsell will take over. Counsell has been part of the team’s front office since he retired in 2012, after five seasons with the team.

Being “Breast Aware”: News 3 is kicking off a new commitment to the community, particularity women. The Buddy Check 3 project reminds women every month to check for signs of breast cancer. A Madison woman knows the importance of checking the signs all too well. Natasha Younger was in a boxing class when she first noticed something was different, but she let it go for about a month. Younger remembers the dreams that haunted her after she noticed unusual pain in her breast. She started seeing her fiancé raising her two daughters without her and knew it was time to go to the doctor to get things checked out. After finding numerous lumps and undergoing numerous biopsies, Younger got the news she feared most: it was breast cancer. Younger went through chemotherapy and radiation. She eventually had to undergo a mastectomy, and her body rejected the implant. Since then, she’s had reconstructive surgery and is cancer free, and is happy to be living a healthy life with her girls. More on this story

In national news…


Probe begins: Who were the two men who opened fire outside a contest for Prophet Mohammed cartoons in a Dallas suburb? The men were shot dead by police last night, but details about their religion or motive weren’t immediately known. The keynote speaker at the event was right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who was placed on an al Qaeda hit list, and it was sponsored by the American Freedom Defense initiative, considered by some to be an anti-Muslim group. The shooting quickly reignited the debate on free speech versus provocation. More on this story


Return to normal?: Not quite, but the lifting of a citywide curfew yesterday is a big step in that direction for Baltimore. In addition to the end of the curfew, the National Guard is preparing to leave sometime this week and Mondawmin Mall, the flashpoint for last week’s riots, reopened yesterday. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the lifting of the curfew and reopening of the mall ” a great day for this community.” Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said some 200 businesses in Baltimore — many minority-owned and lacking insurance — were lost in the riots. Hogan said it was time to “get people back to normal.” More on this story


Meet the family: She doesn’t have a name (yet), but Britain’s newest princess is getting to know her family. The newborn daughter of Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, met Prince Charles and his wife Camilla at Kensington Palace yesterday. Aunt Pippa Middleton and grandmother Carol Middleton have also reportedly met the baby. So what about her name? Speculation is rampant, but the top three choices on betting websites are Alice, Charlotte and Olivia. More on this story


What now?: Now that the “fight of the century” is over, what does boxing do now? The Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight may not have had the excitement that its billing promised, but it was, at the very least, a good excuse to get together with friends and pay exorbitant prices for pay-per-view. But will this be the last fight we do that for? Most boxing fans said this bout should have happened five years ago, when both fighters were in their prime. And outside of Mayweather and Pacquiao, there aren’t any other personalities in the boxing realm that can draw in large numbers of fight fanatics and casual fans (and their money). Boxing’s best best? Crank up the rematch hype machine. More on this story
