He asked the public and the media to respect the privacy of the victims’ families. “I’m sure you’ll know their addresses, I’m sure you’ll know where they live, but please give them that respect.”
Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley said the company is morning the loss of the employees. “They were power house operators, they were machinists and they were electricians. But more importantly they were fathers, they were husbands, and they were friends.”
The shooter, 51-year-old Molson Coors electrician Anthony Ferrill of Milwaukee, killed himself. Mayor Tom Barrett was asked about motive. “There’s an investigation going on. I think it’s premature to speculate on anything.”
