Oneida Casino Shooting 2 die in ‘targeted attack

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.

According to the Green Bay Police Department, reports of an active shooter were received from the Oneida Casino and Radisson Hotel in Ashwaubenon, a suburb of Green Bay, WDJT reported. The television station reported that seven people were shot, but authorities have not confirmed that number and have not provided any details.

“I know for sure two, because it happened right next to us, literally right next to us,” Jawad Yatim said. “But he was shooting pretty aggressively in the building, so I wouldn’t doubt him hitting other people.”

Yatim said the shooting began in a casino restaurant.

“We got the hell out of there, thank God we’re OK, but obviously we wish the best for everybody who’s been shot,” Yatim told the AP.

Melinda Danforth, director of Intergovernmental Affairs for the Oneida Nation, told CNN the tribe had not yet “confirmed the number of casualties or injuries.”

“The shooting took place at the Radisson Inn, which is connected to the Oneida Casino,” Danforth said in an email to the news network.

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.

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.

The Radisson Hotel and Conference Center are connected to the casino.

“Suspect is down,” an officer said in the dispatch audio.

The initial call reported there was “reports of an active shooter.”

The casino is run by the Oneida Nation. The Oneida Nation tweeted, “There’s an active shooter situation at the Main Oneida Casino, please avoid that area. Several law enforcement agencies are on the scene to secure the property. We will update as information becomes available.”
