Seven people are injured in mass shooting at Wisconsin casino: Gamblers flee as gunman opens fire before being arrested by cops
Police swarmed the Oneida Casino in Green Bay, Wisconsin ,on Saturday evening after a gunman went on a shooting rampage leaving seven people wounded.
The casino warned of an 'active shooter situation' in a Tweet posted at 9:18pm and told people to stay away from the area. The casino later said the suspect was in custody.
Fox 11 reported dozens of police cars had raced to the casino in Ashwaubenon, across Highway 172 from Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport.
Witnesses reportedly heard rapid fired shots and officers were spotted drawing their weapons as they entered the casino on Saturday evening.
Gambler Max Westphal said he was standing outside after being evacuated for what he thought was a minor issue.
'All of a sudden we hear a massive flurry of gunshots - 20 to 30 gunshots for sure,' Westphal told WBAY-TV. 'We took off running towards the highway ... There had to have been 50 cop cars that came by on the highway. It was honestly insane.'
There was no information immediately available on any possible fatalities, the severity of injuries, or details about the shooter.
