Oneida Casino An Oneida casino active shooter was reported.

There are reports of an active shooter at the Oneida Casino in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on the evening of May 1, 2020. However, the state’s attorney general now says the situation is “contained,” and the threat to the public has passed.

Authorities said in a late evening news conference that the shooter is deceased. They said it was a “targeted event, not a random shooting. It was targeting a specific victim.” The target wasn’t there, so the gunman decided to shoot the target’s co-workers and friends.

There are two deceased victims, a third victim who is seriously wounded, and the suspect is also deceased.

“Oneida PD and WI DCI investigating active shooter incident at the Oneida Casino/Radisson, in Ashwaubenon. They request BCSO to be point of contact for public information. We are gathering facts and will update as available. Situation is contained, no current threat to the public,” the Brown County Sheriff wrote on Twitter.

Scanner traffic said the active shooter was reported at the “Oneida Casino Radisson,” possibly at a wedding. The shooting was in the restaurant area or sports bar, according to the dispatch audio. “It’s in the restaurant. Male with hat and glasses,” said an officer.

“Suspect is down,” other dispatch audio said. Later the dispatch audio indicated the shooter was in custody and referenced the parking ramp.
