"Today, 18,000 Molson Coors employees are grieving over yesterday's shooting that took the lives of five members of our family here in Milwaukee," said Gavin Hattersley, CEO of Molson Coors Beverage Company.
"They were powerhouse operators, they were machinists, and they were electricians. But more importantly, they were husbands, they were fathers, and they were friends," Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley said at the news conference. "They were part of the fabric of our company and our community, and we will miss them terribly."
Both Chief Morales and Mayor Tom Barrett requested privacy on behalf of the victims' families.
"Our families are hurting, the Molson Coors families are hurting, the Miller families are hurting, our city is hurting," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
"They've gone through something nobody wants to go through," Barrett said. "For over a century and a half they've been a part of the fabric of this community and they’ve been there for us, and it’s now time for us to be there for them as well."
"What's most important right now is that we as a community come together and put our arms around these grieving families," the mayor said.
