Major police scene outside Lambeau Field loading dock right now.

Police say a fired food service worker rammed a former co-worker's vehicle at Lambeau Field, bringing numerous law enforcement agencies to the Green Bay Packers' stadium.

The incident happened Friday afternoon.

Officers responded to Lambeau just after 1 p.m. Friday for a report of an active shooter.

Police say the situation is actively developing, and ask the public to stay away from Green Bay Packers facilities at this time.

Agnew said he and the deputies made a decision to capture the dogs, who were later euthanized, after the family gave permission. The dogs were euthanized Saturday at 11 a.m. and are being preserved until officials can perform a necropsy on them.


The 20-year-old man in custody is a Green Bay resident and was contractor who was sacked from a job earlier this month. He was formerly an employee with a contractor who provides food services to Lambeau. The suspect had been fired from the company earlier in the month due to a fight with another employee.

A man rammed his auto into five cars in the parking lot of Green Bay's famed Lambeau Field before chasing an employee with his vehicle and then crashing.

Police and emergency crews have descended on Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The gate to the loading dock was temporarily up for deliveries, police said.

The stadium was not locked down at any point and police did not find any weapons, according to Police Chief Andrew Smith.

"There's absolutely nothing with tomorrow's game that's going to be affected at all", Smith said.
