2 killed in shooting at Wisconsin casino; gunman slain
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in Wisconsin say a gunman killed two people at a Green Bay casino restaurant and seriously wounded a third before he was shot and killed by police Saturday.
Brown County Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Pawlak said investigators believe the gunman was targeting a specific person he was angry at, but the person wasn’t at the Oneida Casino at the time.
Pawlak said it appears the gunman “decided to still shoot some of the victim’s friends or co-workers.”
Patrons fled the casino after gunshots broke out around 7:30 p.m.
A witness said he saw two people get shot and described a gunman as “shooting pretty aggressively.”
The Oneida Nation tweeted Saturday night, asking people to “please keep our community in your prayers.”
In a statement, Gov. Tony Evers said he’s devastated to hear about the shooting and “we hope and pray those who were injured will recover and are grateful for the first responders who quickly responded to the situation.”
