GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN
Two people were killed and another person was seriously wounded after a shooting at a casino in Wisconsin. The shooting occurred near Green Bay, at the Oneida Casino. Police shot and killed the gunman. Investigators told CNN (@cnn) that they believe the shooter had a “personal relationship” with an employee at the Duck Creek Restaurant inside the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, which happens to be attached to the Oneida Casino.
Lt. Kevin Pawlak, of the Brown County Sheriff’s office said the person the gunman was targeting wasn’t at the casino at the time. The shooter decided to go after the “co-workers or friends” of the intended target. Authorities said that everything is now under control, and there is no longer a threat to the community.
“At first we didn’t really know what to expect. Then once we seen the cop running in there with an AR-15, we knew that this is getting pretty serious. Once we heard the shots, we knew this is no joke anymore. [I’m] pretty thankful we could get out of there, and all of us are safe.”
Eyewitness, Dylan Luehring, of Mayville, Wisconsin told CNN affiliate WLUK when they caught up to him after the shooting.
