MILWAUKEE — National leaders, as well as state and local officials, have begun releasing statements regarding the shooting at Molson Coors.

Molson Coors has released a tweet regarding what is going on at their facility.

Alderman Russell Stamper released this statement to the media:

"I join my colleagues, the residents of the 15th Aldermanic District and the entire City of Milwaukee family in offering sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims of today’s horrific mass workplace shooting at Molson Coors (also commonly called MillerCoors). If you can take a moment, please offer comfort to the loved ones of the victims, and also offer prayers and support for the workers of Molson Coors. The coming days and weeks ahead will be unimaginably challenging for them."

The Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee has also released a statement, saying, "On behalf of the convention team, our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and the Molson Coors community."

"This is an unspeakable tragedy for our city," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Senator Ron Johnson said he is monitoring the situation and sends his prayers to everyone affected.

Representative Gwen Moore has also released a statement via Twitter. She said, "My heart is with the victims, I am praying for everyone impacted by this tragedy."

"You think about the families of those individuals, people who just want to earn an honest living and unfortunately will not be making it back home tonight," said Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.

Additionally, Senator Tammy Baldwin has taken to Twitter to express her emotions regarding the incident.

"I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to the victims and families in Milwaukee, Wisconsin," said President Trump. "Earlier today, a wicked murderer opened fire at a Molson Coors brewing company plant, taking the lives of five people. We send our condolences. We'll be with them. And it's a terrible thing -- terrible thing."
