Authorities say a man who shot and killed two people and wounded a third at a Wisconsin casino restaurant before police killed him had been fired from the eatery and banned from the property.

Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain said Monday that the 62-year-old Bruce Pofahl walked into the Duck Creek Kitchen and Bar on Saturday and fatally shot Ian Simpson and Jacob Bartel at a wait station, then shot and wounded Daniel Mulligan outside the restaurant.

The sheriff says police shot and killed the attacker on the north side of the building near a parking garage.


Authorities in Wisconsin say a gunman killed two people at a Green Bay casino restaurant and seriously wounded a third before he was shot and killed by police.

Brown County Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Pawlak says investigators believe the gunman was targeting a specific person in the attack Saturday, but that person wasn’t at the Oneida Casino at the time and the shooter targeted others instead.

Oneida Chairman Tehassi Hill told WLUK-TV on Sunday that the tribe prohibits firearms on its properties.
