Shooting in the US left at least two dead and several injured in a Wisconsin casino.


A witness claimed to have seen the exact moment when the attacker killed two of the clients who were in the place, "he was shooting quite aggressively in the building, so I do not doubt that he hit other people.

Patrons of a Wisconsin casino fled Saturday night after hearing gunshots at the scene. A witness said at least two people had been shot.

The struck shortly after 7:30 p.m. at the Oneida Casino, west of Green Bay. Tribe spokesman Bobbi Webster confirmed that "people" had been shot but did not say how many or in what condition they were.

State Attorney General Josh Kaul tweeted just before 10 p.m. that the area was under control. There is no threat to the community now.

He gave no further details, and a spokeswoman for the prosecution did not immediately respond to a message for comment.

Green Bay Police and the Brown County Police Department told The Associated Press that they had no details about the incident at the casino.

A witness, Jawad Yatim, said at least two people had been shot.

I definitely know two because it really happened to us, literally with us, Yatim said. But he was shooting very aggressively at the building, so I have no doubt he targeted other people.

He said The shooting began at a casino restaurant, Yatim said.

Thank God We ran away, we're fine, but obviously, we wish all the best to everyone who was shot. 

Webster said the casino is connected to a larger hotel and conference center, Radisson, which is also owned by Oneida Nation.

Casino user Max Westphal said he was out of the area for which he was evicted, after which he believed it would be a trivial matter.

Westphal told WBAY-TV Abruptly, we exploded, no doubt about 20 or 30 shots. We ran to the venue. About 50 police cars were coming on the highway. It was crazy."

Governor Tony Evers said in a statement Saturday night that he was "shocked" by the shooting.

While we await further information, we rely and pray for the recovery of the injured, and we thank the emergency services who responded promptly to this situation.
