ASHWAUBENON, Wis. — Two people were killed and another was injured in a shooting at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, which is connected to Onedia Casino, officials said late Saturday.
Brown County officials confirmed the shooter, 62-year-old Bruce Pofahl, was shot and killed by police.
On Monday, Sheriff Todd Delain said Pofahl walked into the Duck Creek Kitchen and Bar and shot Ian Simpson, 32, and Jacob Bartel, 35, at a waiter station at close range with a 9 mm handgun as dozens of patrons looked on, Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain said during a news conference in Green Bay.
Pofahl then went outside and shot another restaurant employee, 28-year-old Daniel Mulligan, the sheriff said. A team of Green Bay police officers opened fire on Pofahl, killing him.
Mulligan is in serious but stable condition at a Milwaukee hospital, Delain said.
Over the weekend, Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Pawlak said Pofahl shot two alleged friends of the intended victim.
The restaurant is part of a hotel and conference center that includes the Oneida Casino. Delain said Pofahl was fired from the restaurant earlier this year. He didn’t say why Pofahl was fired, but he said the attack was “targeted” and investigators were still piecing together Pofahl’s relationships with his co-workers.
“He was targeting a specific victim who was not there, but he decided to still shoot some of the victim’s friends or co-workers, it appears,” Pawlak said.
There was no threat to the public, but people were asked to avoid the area.
The Radisson is in close proximity to the Green Bay Austin Straubel Airport. Airport officials sent a tweet asking guests to follow a public safety detour when picking up passengers.
