Bruce Pofahl, 62, had been fired from the eatery and ordered by a court to leave his former supervisor alone, according to court records. He walked into the Duck Creek Kitchen and Bar in Green Bay on Saturday and shot Ian Simpson, 32, and Jacob Bartel, 35, at a wait station at close range with a 9 mm handgun as dozens of patrons looked on, Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain said Monday during a news conference in Green Bay.
Pandemonium erupted inside the complex, the sheriff said. As people were yelling and screaming, Pofahl went outside and shot Mulligan, the sheriff said. A team of Green Bay police officers opened fire on Pofahl moments later, killing him.READ MORE: Coronavirus In Massachusetts: Today's Developments
“Danny is still in the ICU but he is doing well considering he was just shot in the face,” his sister Caitlin wrote on Mulligan’s GoFundMe page, which has raised more than $30,000 so far for his recovery. “He has a very long road of recovery ahead of him both physically and mentally.”
