Menasha police release report on fatal bridge shooting


MENASHA, Wis. (AP) -- Menasha police have released a report on the shooting that resulted in four deaths on a recreational bridge which says the shooter had a long history of depression, alcohol dependency, suicidal and sometimes homicidal thoughts.

Investigators say Sergio Valencia del Toro was intoxicated when he fatally shot two men and a child on the bridge before taking his own life May 3.

The report cites del Toro's behavioral health history which showed that while in the Air Force he had either sought or had been ordered to a number of behavioral health interventions. The report says in October 2010, he had gone to an emergency walk-in clinic because he was concerned about the intensity of his mood swings.

Authorities say del Toro killed Jon Stoffel, his 11-year-old daughter Olivia and Adam Bentdahl. Stoffel's wife, Erin, was injured.
