UPDATE: The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says three people are dead and one is injured after a shooting inside the Oneida Casino complex near Green Bay Saturday evening.
The initial call came in at 7:28 p.m. regarding a shooting inside the Duck Creek restaurant inside the Radisson Hotel, which is connected to the casino. A tactical alert was issued, resulting in a large law enforcement presence responding.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling the release of information for Oneida Police, says the initial investigation has determined the suspect was targeting a specific employee. When that person was not found, the suspect fired his gun and killed two people inside.
A third person was injured in the area surrounding the restaurant before a law enforcement officer fired their weapon, fatally striking the suspect.
It took several hours to secure the casino complex before the all clear was given. There is no threat to the surrounding community.
More information is expected to be released in the coming days, which will likely include a news conference Monday.
Law enforcement are responding to a shooting at Oneida Casino Saturday evening, which is near Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport.
