The casino can be found in Green Bay, Wisconsin

Three people have been murdered, including the shot, and one individual was abandoned in critical condition after police responded to an active shooter position at Oneida Casino at Wisconsin on Saturday night.

The first incident started at the Duck Creek restaurant in the Primary casino located in Green Bay, near Austin Straubel Airport.

Lt. Kevin Pawoak and Chief Joel Maxam of the Brown County Sheriff's Office held a press conference a few hours after the shooting and stated that some victims were taken inside the Radisson Hotel that is joined to the Oneido Casino.

Authorities confirmed that every agency within Brown County responded to the scene, including Local fire departments and rescue squads, and that DCI is on scene assisting along with the FBI.

Pawoak and Maxam suggested there is some possible relationship regarding employment using the shooter during the press conference but did not elaborate.

No information of the sort of weapon that has been used in the shooting was given but the target was thought to be an employee. It is now unclear when the shooter was an employee or had a personal relationship with the employee in the restaurant.

Police say the casino was instantly cleared out and that witness statements are still being taken.

Identification of the victims have not been published yet.

Gov. Tony Evers tonight released the following announcement regarding the shooting in the Oneida Casino complicated.

"Kathy and I were devastated to hear about the shooting at the Oneida Casino complicated tonight. "While we are waiting for more info , we hope and pray people who were injured will recover and are grateful for the first responders who promptly responded to the circumstance."

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul stated on Twitter the scenario has been contained and there was no more a danger to the community.
