Police are releasing the identity of the Milwaukee brewery shooter who killed five people this week. Investigators say 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill was an employee at Molson Coors Brewing Company. The victims range in age from 33 to 57-years-old. All of those who were killed were coworkers to Ferrill.
As we continue to get details, local, state and federal lawmakers expressed their condolences and offered prayers for the victims of yesterday’s mass shooting at the Molson Coors Brewery. Senator Tammy Baldwin called the shootings heartbreaking. Governor Tony Evers said the tragedy will have far-reaching consequences for Milwaukee and the state. The president of the AFL-CIO Stephanie Bloomingdale said everyone who goes to work in the morning should come home at night, safe and sound. And Christian Yelich of the Brewers said his thoughts are with the victims, their families and everyone at Molson Coors.
Proving we are all community, local businesses are doing what they can to help the families of the Ash Wednesday shootings as well as the employees of Molson Coors Brewery. Brew City Brand is making t-shirts that read “Miller Strong” for Molson Coors employees. The six Kelly’s Bleachers bars are donating fifty cents of every tap of Miller Lite sold at each bar to families of the victims. And Wisconsin Harley-Davidson is donating a dollar of every green Miller lite it sells at its Saint Patrick’s Day party to victims’ families.
