Three Dead, Including Shooter, In Oneida Casino Shooting

Three Dead, Including Shooter, In Oneida Casino Shooting”

Three people are dead, including a suspect, and another has been seriously injured in a casino shooting near Green Bay, Wisconsin on Saturday, local media reported.

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.

'He was targeting a specific victim who was not there, but he chose to still shoot some of the victim's friends or co-workers, it appears, ' Lt Pawlak said.

Authorities responded to the Oneida Casino after receiving reports of an active shooter Saturday evening. "And then there is one other victim that is seriously wounded and, to our understanding, has been flown to Froedtert (Hospital) or somewhere down in Milwaukee".

Pawlak wasn't sure if the shooter was a former employee of the restaurant, but said "it appears there's some relationship that had to do with employment".

The Radisson Hotel and Conference Center and Oneida Casino are owned and operated by the Oneida Nation.

Yatim said the shooting began in a casino restaurant.

The lone suspect, identified as 62-year-old Bruce Pofahl, was shot and killed by police outside of the complex, near a parking structure, and pronounced dead at the scene, Delain said.

Oneida Police asked the sheriff's office to investigate the homicides and the shooting, and it asked the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation to handle the police shooting of the suspect.

Radisson Hotel Group Americas said in a statement, "We are working closely with the leadership, operations and security teams at the hotel as well as with members of the Oneida Nation to provide support".

Governor Tony Evers said he was "devastated" to hear about the shooting, but gave no details.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is released by the Oneida Nation or law enforcement.

"At first, we didn't really know what to expect".
