Suspect Arrested in Shots Fired Incident At Potawatomi Hotel & Casino

Milwaukee Police have arrested a suspect following a shots fired incident that happened at approximately 2:30 a.m. on April 15 at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. A 38-year-old man retrieved a handgun from his pocket and fired several gunshots inside the building. This caused patrons of the casino to flee from the immediate area. While doing so, several people fell and received minor injuries.  The suspect then relocated to a different area of the casino.  MPD officers arrived on the scene within minutes and with the help of Potawatomi security guards, the suspect was taken into custody without further incident. Officers located the handgun the suspect used to fire the shots. Our investigation has confirmed that no one was injured. The investigation into what lead up to the incident is ongoing.  MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.
