POLICE are responding to an active shooter situation at a casino in Wisconsin.
Gunfire was reported inside the Oneida Casino in Green Bay, shortly before 8.00pm local time.
Oneida Nation, who owns the casino, confirmed the active shooter situation in a post to their Facebook page.
“Several Law Enforcement agencies are working to secure the location. Please do not go near the Main Casino on Hwy 172. We’ll post information as it becomes available,” the post read.
Police have not yet released any information about the shooting.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, WI-172 is closed near the casino due to an “incident.”
Multiple law enforcement agencies are working to secure the location.
A helicopter could be seen flying near the area, according to WBAY.
A witness told the network he was in a restaurant inside the casino when he heard a gunshot and saw a person “go down”.
Die getuie, wat nie genoem is nie, said he ducked under his table before running out an exit.
He says he heard another gunshot outside as law enforcement swarmed into the parking lot.
A second witness said she saw police firing their weapons as they ran into the parking ramp.
No injuries or fatalities have been reported at the time.
A heavy police presence remains at the scene.
Video posted to social media by Anne Luty showed people running outside the building as what sounds like gunshots are thundering out in the background.
“My friend just sent me this video,” Luty wrote. “Her mom, aunt, and grandmother are there.”
