… Moments later, he randomly shot and killed 33-year-old Jonathan Stoffel and his daughter, 11-year-old Olivia on the bridge of Little Lake Butte des Morts.

Another man, 31-year-old Adam Bentdahl, was also killed.

If it hadn’t been for the heroism of Erin Stoffel, their other children – and boy and a girl age five and seven – might have suffered the same fate. Shielding her children with her own body, she was able to get them off the bridge and to safety.

Erin was struck by bullets three times, but survived.

This morning, Madison’s NBC-15 reported that Erin Stoffel remains in critical but stable condition, and is communicating via a dry erase board. She told attendees what her husband’s last words were:

Forgive the shooter.

The shooter is a veteran who allegedly was suffering from PTSD, and he took his own life at the scene. It is a horribly tragic situation, and this brave family needs all of our prayers and support.
