APPLETON, Wis. (AP) A police officer and a firefighter have been injured in a shooting in Appleton, Wisconsin, and several others have been taken to a hospital.

Appleton police Officer Meghan Cash says first responders went to a downtown location following a call that someone needed medical assistance about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

It is not yet clear what happened after they arrived but Cash says there was a shooting and the firefighter and officer were injured. She did not give their condition.
