MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 27-year-old man was charged Monday in a shooting incident at Milwaukee’s Potawatomi Casino on Father’s Day.
Gregory Harmon of Wauwatosa is due in court Thursday on charges of illegally carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a gun where alcohol is consumed, and endangering safety.
Milwaukee County prosecutors did not say why it took almost two-and-a-half months to file charges. One holdup might have been blood tests, which showed that marijuana was in Harmon’s system at the time.
Authorities said Harmon was with two other men and a woman in the casino, when he got into an argument with one of the men.
Witnesses said the two started hitting each other – and then Harmon drew a gun and started firing. Other casino patrons fought with Harmon to seize the weapon, but three shots were fired in the process.
A 23-year-old Milwaukee woman was wounded, and another gambler was grazed.
