In one of the worst shootings in Wisconsin history, at least seven people were killed — including a gunman — during a shooting rampage Wednesday afternoon on the Milwaukee campus of Molson Coors, according to multiple sources.
Police were called to the brewery complex at 3939 W. Highland Ave., at 2:11 p.m. Eight minutes later, employees were notified by email that an active shooter was in or near the second-floor stairwell of the sprawling factory’s Building 4.
Around 4:45 p.m. police reported there was no active threat but the scene was still active, and asked people to say clear of the area. Police also set up a staging area for Molson Coors employees and families in the Harley-Davidson factory parking on Juneau Avenue.
“It is a horrible, horrible day for the employees here. It is a very rough day for anyone who is close to this situation,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said at the scene at 4:30 p.m.
