Shooting basketball players have been killed in an ambush outside a Milwaukee shooting range in a city where shootings are up more than 100 percent since January.
Milwaukee Police said the shooter, identified as 29-year-old Jonathan D. Williams of Arlington, was killed at the range Saturday morning.
Officers found Williams in the parking lot of the Shooting Sports Center.
Police said he had an assault rifle, a handgun, ammunition and a bomb.
Williams was also carrying a backpack containing three plastic bags of nails, which investigators recovered.
The shooting occurred in a parking lot in the same area where a gunman opened fire on police in Dallas earlier this month.
Williams was one of six Milwaukee Bucks players to be killed this season, a stretch that has increased pressure on the city to improve its shooting and policing.
Milford Police Chief Mike Wozniak said Saturday that a police report identified the shooting as being a homicide and police were working to determine a motive.
Williams had no criminal history and worked for a shooting range, Wozniak said.
He was the third Milwaukee Bucks player to die in recent weeks.
On Feb. 17, a 20-year veteran of the team died when he was struck by a car.
The next day, a 16-year team veteran, Chris Webber, died in a car crash after being struck by another vehicle.
