An active shooter situation at Molson Coors Brewing Co. has left multiple people dead, according to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Barrett said he believed a suspected gunman was also dead, but did not offer any information on how many people were killed in the attack.
A senior official brief on the situation said an employee recently fired from the facility returned to the scene and opened fire. Preliminary information indicated at least three people were dead, the official said.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, however, reported seven deaths, including the gunman.
NBC News has not independently confirmed the Journal Sentinel’s report of the incident.
Just after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Milwaukee police tweeted that the department was investigating a “critical incident” at the brewing company campus. Police asked the public in a tweet to “please stay clear of the area.”
