A shooting at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, that is connected to the Oneida Casino, Saturday evening resulted in the killing of three people including the gunman and one person injured according to the Brown County Sheriff's Office.

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

The intended target was an employee who was not there at the time but the gunman made a decision to shoot some of their friends or acquaintances, he said.

The attack happened at around 7.30pm on Saturday at the Oneida Casino, operated by the Oneida Nation on the western side of Green Bay, with the casino tweeting that an active gunman was on the scene. They also advised people to stay away from the main casino. She said people were being cleared out of the casino and nearby properties.

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.

However, Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said that only updates from the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the Brown County Sheriff's Office are official incident statements and all others are unconfirmed.

Police officers proceeded to fatally shoot the suspect outside the hotel near the Oneida Casino. Airport Drive was closed as police secured the area.

The casino is located on the Oneida Reservation of the Oneida Nation, which runs the casino. The Oneida Casino announced that all of the tribe's casino locations will be closed until further notice at 8:51 pm on Saturday, May 1, 2021.
