A gunman opened fire and killed five people before taking his own life on Wednesday on the Molson Coors Brewing Company campus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Police Department said in a press conference.

The shooter was identified as a 51-year-old Milwaukee man.

U.S. President Donald Trump sent his condolences to the victim's families before briefing the media on measures to fight the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
