MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police say the gunman who opened fire at Milwaukee’s Molson Coors brewery complex killed five employees before taking his own life.

Police identified the gunman as a 51-year-old Milwaukee man who worked at the complex. The shooting occurred Wednesday at a sprawling complex that includes a mix of corporate offices and brewing facilities. At least 600 people work there.

It's widely known in the Milwaukee area as “Miller Valley," a reference to the Miller Brewing Co. that is now part of Molson Coors.
