Shooting at Oneida Casino near Green Bay

BREAKING: Shooting at Oneida Casino near Green Bay

The shooting scene at a Green Bay casino has been "contained" and "there is no longer a threat to the community", according to Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul.

Investigators believe the suspect was targeting a specific person he was angry at, but the person wasn't at the casino at the time, AP reported citing Brown County Sheriff's Lt. Kevin Pawlak.

The names of the suspect, victims and officers involved will not be released Sunday, according to the Brown County Sheriff's Department.

Radisson Hotel Group Americas said in a statement, "We are working closely with the leadership, operations and security teams at the hotel as well as with members of the Oneida Nation to provide support".

The casino tweeted that all of its buildings have been closed until further notice.

The Oneida Casino & Resort are owned and operated by the Oneida Nation.

Authorities stated that the suspect entered the building on the south side between the casino and restaurant before walking to the restaurant, and going directly to the waiter's station in the back of the restaurant.
