Three people, including the shooter, were killed and and a fourth seriously injured, in a shooting at Oneida Casino Saturday night. Lt. Kevin Pawlak of the Brown County Sheriff's Office says law enforcement officials killed the shooter. Because many agencies responded, it is not clear which officers were involved in the shooting. The surviving victim was airlifted to a hospital in the Milwaukee area. Pawlak says officers were called to the Duck Creek Restaurant inside the casino/Radisson Conference Center complex just before 7:30 p.m. Investigators believe the shooter had "ties to the Oneida Casino from an employment status." Sheriff's officials say the person the shooter targeted was not at the casino, but he then shot people believed to be friends or acquaintances of the intended target. Quinn Heintz told FOX 11 he and his mother had gone to the casino to play bingo. "We literally just pulled into the parking lot and got out, and we could hear the gunshots, and everybody started running at us," he said. "We didn't know what was really going on, so we started heading back to the car and then probably 15, 20 seconds later, we heard about 15 more gunshots and then cops started coming in from everywhere." The Brown County Sheriff's Office says the situation is contained and there is no threat to public safety. No officers were injured in the incident. The Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.
