An employee opened fire Wednesday at one of the nation's largest breweries in Milwaukee, killing five fellow workers before taking his own life, police said.
Police said the gunman is a 51-year-old Milwaukee man who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Authorities offered no immediate motive for the attack and did not release details about the shooter or how the shooting unfolded.
The identities of those who passed away will be released at a later time, Police Chief Alfonso Morales said. No one was wounded beyond those who were killed, authorities said.
Officers worked for hours to clear the more than 20 buildings in the complex where more than 1,000 people work. Police announced at a late evening news conference that the work was done and all employees had been allowed to go home. Police Chief Alfonso Morales said authorities believe the shooter acted alone.
