A man killed himself and 5 of his coworkers at the Molson Coors Complex In Milwaukee.
Six Molson Coors’s beverage company employees are dead after a 51-year old man shot and killed five people before killing himself. Police have yet to reveal a motive; it is clear though that the shooter was an active employee.
On the same day, a legislature rejected the idea of changing gun laws; a mass shooting took place. The mayor of the city, Tom Barrett, called the shooting the “saddest day” in Miller Valley’s history. Barrett went on to his share his sentiments regarding the shooting saying:
“There were five individuals who went to work today, just like everybody goes to work, and they thought they were going to go to work, finish their day and return to their families. They didn’t – and tragically they never will,”
Around 2 pm, police received a call about an active shooter at the Molson Coors complex. When they arrived, police found six people dead inside of an office building. Employees were notified of an active shooter and told to find a safe place. Eventually, police secured the site as every employee was screened and put on lockdown.
As with any other Mass Shooting, the immediate conversations of gun control has come up. Yesterday’s shooting did not involve an assault weapon. However, the shooter did have silencers on at least one of his two handguns.
The question becomes, are guns the problem, or are people the problem.
