United States: Two killed in shooting at Wisconsin casino

A gunman opened fire at a Wisconsin casino on Saturday night, killing two people and seriously injuring another before he was shot dead by police.

The shooting took place around 7:30pm at the Duck Creek Restaurant, inside a Radisson on the grounds of the Oneida Casino in a suburb of Green Bay, police said in a press conference early Sunday morning.

The shooter apparently had a personal relationship with an employee of the restaurant, and went there to kill that person, police said.

His target was not there, and he instead opened fire on the workers colleagues, officials believe.

“There was some relationship that had to do with employment. Whether or not they all work there, that’s something we’re working on,” an investigator said.

Gambler Max Westphal recounted the harrowing incident to local reporters saying, “All of a sudden we hear a massive flurry of gunshots 20 to 30 gunshots for sure.”

“We took off running towards the highway … There had to have been 50 cop cars that came by on the highway. It was honestly insane.”
