oneida active shooter

Oneida Casino An Oneida casino active shooter was reported.

Video and dispatch audio capture some of the scene after an active shooter opened fire at the Oneida Casino/Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on the evening of May 1, 2020.

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.

However, the state’s attorney general now says the situation is “contained,” and the threat to the public has passed. According to WBAY-TV, the suspect is in custody.

Video captured the law enforcement response and panic at the scene.

Fox6 spoke to a witness, who said, “We all started walking outside slowly, and next thing you know they say this is serious. Next thing we know you see a cop with an AR15. It was nuts.” He said the “next thing you know we hear 40 shots. We were running and ducking in the woods…There were a lot of shots for sure.”

The Oneida Nation tweeted, “All @OneidaCasino locations will be closed until further notice. We will post additional information as it becomes available.”

The casino is located in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, near Green Bay.
