UPDATE: Possible motive in Menasha shootingSubmitted: 05/04/2015
MENASHA - Update: Mon. 5/4 2:30pm

Police have revealed more about what may have motivated a gunman to shoot four strangers before killing himself on a recreational bridge in Menasha.

The city's police chief, Tim Styka identified the dead Monday as 33-year-old Jonathan Stoffel, of Neenah, his 11-year-old daughter, Olivia Stoffel, and 31-year-old Adam Bentdahl of Appleton. Stoffel's wife, Erin, was shot three times, but survived and is hospitalized in critical condition.

The chief says the 27-year-old gunman, Sergio Valencia del Toro, fatally shot himself after randomly shooting the others near a pavilion on the bridge Sunday night. Styka says del Toro and his fiancee had recently called off their wedding and had argued before the shooting.

Erin Stoffel and two other children, ages 5 and 7, made it off the bridge with the older child running for help.
