Sheriff Identifies Victims in Wisconsin Casino Shooting, Says Gunman Was Fired Employee
Authorities in Brown County, Wisconsin Recognized the victims and the suspect in a shooting Saturday near a Local casino.
The killer has been fired worker Bruce K. Pofahl, 62, said Sheriff Todd Delain. This defendant entered the Duck Creek Kitchen + Bar, went to a host channel (which was introduced to the public), also shot Ian J. Simpson, 32, also Jacob T. Bartle, 25, using a 9mm handgun. Only away from the complex to the north, he also wounded Daniel L. Mulligan, 28, who’s defined as being in serious but stable condition at a hospital in Milwaukee.
A Green Bay police officer shot and killed Pofahl at a confrontation shortly after the defendant shot Mulligan, Delain said.
The sheriff said that the area as being a large complicated. The restaurant is within the Raddison Hotel, which is linked to the Oneida Casino. The area contains a convention center, and banquet halls, with multiple entry and exit points. Delain said several hundred people have been at the conference area, including patrons and employees, a wedding celebration, and casino guests.
The rationale remains under investigation. Pofahl was fired in the restaurant earlier this year, the sheriff said. Delain stopped short of calling this a”domestic” incident, and only said the defendant understood at least one of the guys. The sheriff didn’t name the individual the defendant was targeting. Delain said authorities are aware that one of the restaurant workers had a restraining order against Pofahl.
As is normal to get a police shooting, the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the killing of Pofahl by the Green Bay police officer. Delain praised the bravery of those 75 officers from multiple agencies that responded to the accounts of the active shooter.
