By Josh BurydenSource: WCPO/CNN|Published: October 10, 2019 02:19:55|Updated: October 12, 2019 09:48:25For those who lived through the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma City and Kansas City, the aftermath of this deadly tornado in Madison, Wisconsin was painful.
And while the tornadoes did damage to several homes and businesses, Madison Police Chief Chris McBride said that they are not at all at fault for the deaths of three people, including the family’s oldest child.
The Chief said that it was the homeowner who was the one to pull the trigger, and the homeowner’s son has been charged with murder.
The homeowner’s wife and other family members were all killed when the tornado ripped through the home.
According to McBride, the tornado was the largest to hit the area since the 1930s, and is still the second largest tornado to ever hit Wisconsin.
The tornado caused damage that included damage to roofs and damaged electrical infrastructure, including power lines, and trees were uprooted.
Many businesses were damaged, including a Dairy Queen and several hotels, McBride told CNN’s Erin Burnett in a recent interview.
A large crowd of people, many of whom had not yet left their homes, gathered at a church where they had gathered to pray for the injured.
The Madison Police Department posted on Facebook that it is investigating a possible hate crime.
McBride said on Friday that police are looking into the possible bias of the man who shot the homeowner, and whether there was anything to the story that led him to pull a gun.
The sheriff’s office released a statement that read in part: “The Madison County Sheriff’s Office would like to apologize for any personal pain this event has caused.
There were a number of individuals that were not at home when this happened and we are asking for their patience as we investigate what happened here on October 10th.”
Authorities did not immediately return a CNN request for comment.
McBundy said that the investigation into the shooting is ongoing, but he has yet to make any arrests.
He said that he believes that the man was acting in self-defense.
He added that investigators are trying to figure out what led to the homeowner pulling a gun on the man, and how it was discharged.
“We are just trying to piece together what happened,” he said.
McBridge, a veteran, has been a police officer for 20 years.
He was also the first African-American police officer in the state of Wisconsin to be appointed to the police department.
He also served as the chief of the Madison Police Officers Association.
