Shooter Killed Two Folks, Injured a Last-minute Wisconsin Casino After Original Goal Was Not Even There: Deputies
A gunman killed two people, injured a third, and had been slain by an officer Saturday night in a casino complex in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office haven’t identified the defendant or the victims, pending notification, however a spokesman said in a press conference which the killer had been targeting someone else.
The scene of the offense was in the Region of the Oneida Casino, attached to the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center.
Authorities said they believe the shooter was connected to the casino by”an employment status,” according to WLUK.
Officials said that the initial goal wasn’t there.
“Please keep our community in your prayers,” Oneida Nation Vice Chairman Brandon Stevens in a statement Saturday night. “There has been an active shot at our Hotel and Casino tonight. Situation is under control and the community is in no additional danger. Updates will be coming as Oneida and encompassing law enforcement and emergency agencies are in the scene.”
“Our heartfelt condolences are extended to all the loved ones of their victims. We’re reaching out to supply all essential services of counseling for all our employees from the Radisson and the Oneida Casino operations.”
According to deputies, the Oneida Police Department asked the state Department of Criminal Investigation to successfully handle the matter of their officer shooting the defendant. They ask that if some eyewitnesses of the deaths still have not spoken to researchers, they should telephone Lt. Brian Slinger in -LRB-920-RRB- 448-4229, and also leave their name and contact number for an interview.
