Murphy Makes First Public Comments About Temple Shooting
Lt. Brian Murphy gave his first account of the Aug. 5 Sikh temple shootings to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Murphy and Officer Sam Lenda, the second officer to respond, go into detail about the events that day and what was going through their mind as their encounter with gunman Wade Michael Page unfolded.
In a separate story, the Journal Sentinel spoke with two doctors at Froedtert Hospital who worked on Murphy after he arrived. Michael Stadler, a head and neck surgeon, called the injury to Murphy's voicebox "the worst injury that I had seen."
Murphy and Lenda were also scheduled to appear Monday night on the CBS Evening News (update: this interview has been delayed until at least Wednesday due to Hurricane Sandy)
