BREAKING: At Least 7 Dead, Including Gunman, In Horrific Milwaukee Shooting

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett confirmed that seven individuals, including the shooter, are now dead after the gunman opened fire at the Milwaukee campus of Molson Coors.

This is said to be the most horrific shooting in Wisconsin history, having experienced a total of six mass murders in the last 20 years.

What’s more chilling is that the shooter had just been fired earlier that day.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

The brewery was on lock-down, according to Twitter users whose spouses work inside. Others nearby businesses and schools also were not allowing people in or out.

Fire department emergency radio broadcasts from Broadcastify captured the first chaotic minutes when emergency responders arrived, painting a vivid picture of the scene.

“I just overheard on the radio seven — seven — victims. We might want to get some more med units here,” a fire commander said over the radio.

“Start building rescue task forces,” another fire commander ordered over the radio.

Then another commander came on the radio.

“I just had a police officer inform me that the the shooter committed suicide and (the officer) believes they have six victims besides the shooter,” the fire commander reported to dispatchers.

The shooter is nothing but a freaking coward. This kind of stuff just boils my blood.

The fire department called in additional paramedic units to start the casualty collection point, nearby schools were placed on lockdown, and the employees locked inside the building frantically tried contacting those on the outside.

I can’t even imagine what that would be like. It’s completely terrifying to even visualize, nonetheless to actually experience.

My heart and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who lost their lives in this tragic event.
