May 4, 2021

GREEN BAY, WI (AP)--   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 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.
