Wisconsin retiree charged in shooting of Amtrak conductor

ABC 7 in Chicago reported that the shooter, Edward Klein, is a retired federal law enforcement officer.

Edward Klein, 79, of West Allis, Wisconsin, is being held without bond in the DuPage County Jail, according to the DuPage County sheriff's office.

Bond has been set at $1.5 million for the Wisconsin man accused of shooting an Amtrak conductor in IL earlier this week, according to DuPage County officials.

Investigators say the suburban Milwaukee man got off a westbound train in Missouri Tuesday after aborting plans to go to Las Vegas. In other words, in the suburbs of Chicago, an Amtrak train conductor was shot in the stomach by a passenger in the Naperville train station, which halted the train rush for several hours.

Klein is accused of firing one shot out of the window after the train pulled into the Naperville.

Klein seemed disoriented at his bond hearing on Friday.
