VIDEO: Person captures aftermath of Appleton shooting on Facebook Live

APPLETON, Wis. - New video has emerged of the aftermath of an officer-involved shooting in Appleton early Sunday morning.

The video was posted on Facebook by user James Coumbe at 1:48 a.m. and has since been viewed thousands of times.

WARNING: There is graphic and uncensored language in the video seen below.

The shooting happened at Jack's Apple Pub around 1:40 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators have not released the name of the man killed in the shooting, but have said the officer involved is Lieutenant Jay Steinke. 

Steinke came in through the south entrance of the bar and shot the suspect, who was holding a gun, according to the Appleton Police Department. 

Two men were injured: one from a gunshot wound to the arm and another with a shoulder injury not from gunfire, police said.

Neighboring restaurants said they are now taking extra precautions after Sunday's incident.

Aaron Prunty, who works at Mister Taco Bar directly behind Jack's Apple Pub, said he was there the night of the shooting and said Mister Taco Bar has now hired a security bouncer.

"All of a sudden, I saw cops everywhere," said Prunty. "They were running towards here at the bar explaining what had happened, two minutes later they blocked it off like a stand off. I was nervous, I didn't know what was going on."

Prunty said he's seen fights here and there in that area, but nothing like this.

Appleton Police and Jack's Apple Pub made no further comment Monday.
