Six people died in a shooting at the Molson Coors Brewing Company in Milwaukee on Wednesday, including the gunman, Mayor Tom Barrett told reporters at a Wednesday evening press conference with local police.

Details: All of the victims worked at the brewery complex, as did the shooter who died of "an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound," police confirmed in a statement late Wednesday.

  • The victims were identified by police on Thursday as 33-year-old Jesus Valle Jr., 61-year-old Gennady Levshetz, 33-year-old Trevor Wetselaar, 57-year-old Dana Walk, and 60-year-old Dale Hudson.
  • Police said the shooting happened at about 2 p.m. local time at the campus, which has more than 20 buildings.
  • "Six families are grieving and will be grieving because of this horrific act of this individual. ... There were five individuals who went to work today, just like everybody goes to work," Barrett told reporters.

What they're saying: President Trump told reporters, "We send our condolences. We'll be with them, and it’s a terrible thing, a terrible thing."

  • Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) tweeted, "The news out of Milwaukee is devastating, and my heart goes out to the victims, their families, and all those at Molson Coors. There’s no place for these kinds of hateful and disgusting acts in our society."
  • "Gun violence has taken too many lives in Milwaukee and the mass shooting today is heartbreaking," Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) tweeted. "I want to thank the first responders who ran into harm's way and saved lives. My office is standing by to help the #MKE community in the wake of this tragedy."

Robert Mueller speaks out on Roger Stone commutation

Former special counsel Robert Mueller responded to claims from President Trump and his allies that Roger Stone was a "victim" in the Justice Department's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, writing in a Washington Post op-ed published Saturday: "He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."

Why it matters: The rare public comments by Mueller come on the heels of President Trump's move to commute the sentence of his longtime associate, who was sentenced in February to 40 months in prison for crimes stemming from the Russia investigation. The controversial decision brought an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars.
