Middleton Shooter Shot multiple times; Massive Amounts of Ammo in Home

One of the three victims injured in Wednesday’s shooting at a Middleton software company was shot 10 times, according to a search warrant released today.

Investigators also recovered dozens of cans of ammo along with gun parts and computers, according to the documents.

Anthony Y. Tong, 43, of Madison, opened fire on coworkers Wednesday, Sept. 19 at WTS Paradigm on Deming Way in Middleton where he worked, injuring three before being shot and killed by police.

The three victims have been upgraded to fair condition Friday afternoon at UW Hospital.

Investigators obtained the search warrant shortly after the shooting and began the search of Tong’s home at 9738 Gilded Cider Blvd. in Madison.

Tong recently built the house and moved out of a Verona apartment July 31, 2018, according to the search warrant.

Among the items removed from the home were:

  • Dozens of ammunition boxes and ammunition.
  • AR magazines, scopes and accessories.
  • Multiple laptop and tower computers
  • A handwritten note near a computer and an emergency contact list
  • Filing cabinet filled with firearm related documents
  • Black powder gun
  • iPhone

Tong was prohibited from owning firearms after a court revoked his concealed weapon permit in 2004.

At that time Tong lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and police were initially called to Tong’s apartment for a report of a disabled fire alarm.

But as police began to investigate, they became concerned over Tong’s mental health, according to an affidavit to support and order to revoke his concealed carry permit.

When police entered the apartment, Tong told them he had disabled the fire alarm and other electronic devices because “the people in the apartment below him were eavesdropping,” according to the affidavit.

As officers continued to question Tong, they said they felt he was acting paranoid and delusional.

Officers said they handcuffed Tong for his own safety, which is when they discovered a 40 caliber model 239 Sig Sauer handgun with a double magazine pouch located on his belt.

The handgun was loaded with a round in the chamber, according to the affidavit. Tong also had a can of pepper spray and pocket knife on him.

In his bedroom, police found a Colt AR-15 with a large amount of ammunition.

When asked if he would consider shooting someone else, police say Tong was evasive. At that time, police said they felt there was a danger to the public.

Tong eventually made statements that, “there were people at work that were talking bad about him,” according to the affidavit.

Police then transported Tong to the mental health unit of a hospital where he was put on a 24-hour mental health hold.
