“Milwaukee is grieving today,” Police Chief Alfonso Morales told reporters.

“We are all a family. We work a lot of hours together, so we’re all very sad,” said Curka, a brewery employee who was turned away from work when the complex went on lockdown following reports of the shooting.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of the USA TODAY Network reported that employees were notified by email that an active shooter was in or near the second-floor stairwell of the factory’s Building 4. The suspect and victims were found dead in the same building, Morales said.

What type of gun was used in the attack?

The Journal Sentinel, citing a police source, said the shooter was armed with two handguns, including one with a silencer. The make and model of the weapons, however, remained unknown early Thursday.

Silencers or suppressors are legal in 42 states, including Wisconsin, but must be registered under the National Firearms Act. According to the latest federal report, more than 29,000 were registered in the Badger State, the Journal Sentinel reported.

What’s the history of mass shootings in Wisconsin?

Wednesday’s shooting marked the state’s 11th mass shooting since 2004 but the first in Milwaukee in nearly eight years.

In August 2012, a white supremacist killed six people and injured four others at a Sikh temple in suburban Oak Creek before killing himself after being wounded in a shootout with police.

Seven years earlier, a man fatally shot seven people and wounded four others at a church service inside the Sheraton Hotel in Brookfield, another Milwaukee suburb, the area's deadliest mass shooting in the past 20 years.
