A gunman walked into a Wisconsin casino looking for a person he appeared to have a beef with and opened fire on a group of people even though the target wasn’t there, killing two and seriously wounding a third before being shot dead by police, authorities said.
“He was targeting a specific victim who was not there, but he decided to still shoot some of the victim’s friends or co-workers, it appears,” Brown County Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Pawlak said.
He said it was still unclear if the shooter, who has not been identified, was a former employee of the casino, but added that “it appears there’s some relationship that had to do with employment.”
“Whether or not they all worked there, we’re still working on,” Pawlak said.
The violence erupted around 7:30 p.m. at the Duck Creek Restaurant inside the Oneida Casino/Radisson Conference Center in Ashwaubenon, west of Green Bay, WBAY-TV reported.
The gunman was killed by law enforcement
