At least 5 people dead in Milwaukee shooting at Molson Coors

At least five people were killed in a shooting at the Milwaukee campus of Molson Coors, one of the world’s largest brewers of beer, according to the city’s mayor.

The gunman was also killed. The motive for the attack remains unclear.

The shooting occurred in the early afternoon while hundreds of employees were still at work. Molson Coors owns the Coors and Miller beer brands.

Local police, the FBI and federal firearms agents were also responding to the attack.

Nearby schools and businesses were locked down as the incident unfolded, local media say.

The company and police have not provided additional details on what is still an active situation.

Wisconsin congressman Mike Gallagher condemned the attack on Twitter, saying: “There’s no place for these kinds of hateful and disgusting acts in our society.”
