Mehrere Menschen wurden am Mittwoch bei einer Schießerei auf dem Campus der Molson Coors Brewing Co. getötet, sagte der Bürgermeister von Milwaukee, Tom Barrett.
The dead include the shooter, said Barrett, who did not give an exact number of people killed in Wednesday’s shooting.
“What has happened is there was a horrific shooting that has occurred,” Barrett told reporters. “We’re urging all residents and people in this area to stay away from this area…. They’re continuing their sweep to make sure there is nothing more that’s occurring. It is a horrible, horrible day for the employees here. It’s a very rough day for anyone who is close to this situation.”
Police tweeted late Wednesday afternoon that there was no longer an active threat. Authorities did not immediately release details about the shooter or how the shooting unfolded.

It occurred at a sprawling complex that includes a mix of corporate offices and brewing facilities. At least 600 people work at the complex, which is widely known in the Milwaukee area as “Miller Valley,” a reference to the Miller Brewing Co. that is now part of Molson Coors.
James Boyles told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his wife, Lasonya Ragdales, works at Molson Coors in the claims department. She was texting from inside the facility and told her husband that there was an active shooter and she was locked in a room with a bunch of co-workers, the Journal Sentinel reported.
“Miller Valley” features a 160-year-old brewery, with a packaging centre that fills thousands of cans and bottles every minute and a distribution centre the size of five football fields.
Die Einrichtung beherbergt auch den Kundendienst, die Finanzen, die Personalabteilung und das Engineering der Unternehmen. Touren führen die Menschen zu unterirdischen Höhlen, in denen einst Bier gelagert wurde, zu einem Salon mit aufwendigen Holzarbeiten, einer Steinhalle mit Buntglasfenstern, einem Champagnerraum-Versammlungssaal mit Bleiglasfenstern und einem Biergarten im Freien, in dem 300 Personen Platz finden.
