Authorities say a man who shot and killed two people and wounded a third at a Green Bay 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. Mulligan is in serious but stable condition at a Milwaukee hospital. 

Patrons fled the casino after gunshots broke out around 7:30 p.m. A witness said he saw two people get shot and described a gunman as “shooting pretty aggressively.”
