Two people were killed at a casino hotel just outside of Green Bay Saturday evening, with police then fatally shooting the suspected gunman.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office says the shooting at the Oneida Casino was a targeted attack, with the gunman looking for a worker at the Duck Creek Kitchen & Bar inside the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, which is connected to the casino.

The person he was targeting wasn't there however, with the gunman then opening fire on two of the person's coworkers, killing them, and seriously wounding a third who was airlifted to a hospital in Milwaukee for surgery.

The suspect was fatally shot by police outside the hotel, after an active shooter situation was declared just before 7:30 p.m.

Per FOX 11, it's believed that the shooter had "ties to the Oneida Casino from an employment status."

In a post on his Facebook page, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers said: "Kathy and I were devastated to hear about the shooting at the Oneida Casino complex tonight. Our hearts, thoughts, and support go out to the Oneida Nation, the Ashwaubenon and Green Bay communities, and all those affected by this tragedy.

"While we are waiting for more information, we hope and pray those who were injured will recover and are grateful for the first responders who quickly responded to the situation."
