A gunman at Molson Coors in Milwaukee killed six people Wednesday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The shooter is also dead.

Molson Coors spokesman Martin Maloney said there was an “active situation” but didn’t have any further details. There was a heavy police presence in the area, along with fire trucks and ambulances.

Live video showed an officer in body armor getting an assault rifle out of car.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett also arrived on the scene.

The incident occurred at a sprawling complex that includes a mix of corporate offices and brewing facilities. At least 600 people work at the complex.

Milwaukee police asked that people stay clear of the area and that no helicopters or drones be flown over the site for “officer safety purposes.”

CBS reported that Milwaukee police sources told them that the gunman was fired earlier in the day. He returned later, after having appeared to have stolen the nametag of another employee, and started shooting with a silenced gun.
