Emergency vehicles are at North 35th and West State streets. Molson Coors said Wednesday there was an active shooter on its Milwaukee campus.

MILWAUKEE – In one of the worst shootings in Wisconsin history, five people were killed by a gunman during a rampage on the Milwaukee campus of Molson Coors on Wednesday afternoon.

The gunman died by suicide, bringing the total of known dead so far to six. Initial accounts from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel indicated at least seven had died, but that number has since been clarified.

The suspect was a 51-year-old Milwaukee man who died from a fatal gunshot wound, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said. A statement from Molson Coors officials said the gunman was “an active brewery employee.”

Morales said around 6:45 p.m. that there were more than 20 buildings that needed to be secured on the Molson Coors campus, known to many locals as “the old Miller brewery.”

A checkpoint process for employees would take several hours to complete, he estimated.
