Investigators say the suburban Milwaukee man got off a westbound train in Missouri Tuesday after aborting plans to go to Las Vegas. He then boarded a Chicago-bound train.
Prosecutors say Klein told police he became angry when he couldn’t disembark in Naperville, outside Chicago, and shot the conductor. The conductor remains in intensive care.
Klein is a retired federal protective services officer. Such officers are responsible for protecting federal buildings.
