The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel today published an exclusive interview with Oak Creek Police Lt. Brian Murphy, who was shot 12 times in the Sikh temple shooting on Aug. 5. Bill Glauber’s front-page story was the first interview granted by Murphy, who will also be interviewed by CBS Evening News, scheduled to air tonight. The Journal Sentinel’s Mark Johnson interviews Froedtert Hospital’s lead trauma surgeon Travis Webb, who was in charge of Murphy's initial 12-hour surgery, in an accompanying story.

Last week, Murphy and Officer Sam Lenda, the Oak Creek marksman whose rifle shot brought down white supremacist Wade Michael Page, sat for interviews with the Journal Sentinel inside a conference room at the Oak Creek Police Department headquarters. They discussed the attack on the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin and its aftermath. Glauber’s front-page story on their interview can be found here.

In addition to the exclusive interview with Murphy, Journal Sentinel medical reporter Mark Johnson interviewed surgeon Travis Webb, the Froedtert Hospital trauma surgeon who led the teams performing the 12-hour surgery to treat Murphy’s injuries. Johnson’s story can be found here.

Said Managing Editor George Stanley: “The Journal Sentinel has been at the forefront of providing extensive and detailed coverage of this shooting and that continues with these gripping stories detailing exactly what happened that day.”
