Mass Shooting at Milwaukee Brewery Committed By Fired, Disgruntled Employee

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are hurting tonight in Wisconsin. 

Yesterday, our nation again mourned the victims of a senseless tragedy.

In Milwaukee, the inarguable pilsner capital of the world, one of the nation’s most prestigious breweries played home to a nightmarish scene as a gunman opened fire.  When the dust settled, six were dead including the shooter, and one other person was injured.

Police are now beginning to put together a motive for this horrific crime.

Milwaukee police identified the suspected shooter as Anthony N. Ferrill, 51, who worked for the brewing giant for 17 years as an electrician. Police Chief Alfonso Morales did not release a motive for the killings, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said Ferrill had a long-running feud with another co-worker that erupted just before the shooting.

A co-worker told the newspaper that Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was African-American. The source said he frequently watched movies on his phone during the day, leading to disputes between him and another electrician, who was one of Wednesday’s victims.

At one point, the pair accused each other of stealing tools and tampering with computer equipment in their respected offices, the paper said.

There were some more alarming accusations as well:

Ferrill also believed co-workers bugged a computer inside his home and moved chairs around, the paper reported. The Milwaukee Police Department and the city did not respond to messages and calls from Fox News.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are hurting tonight in Wisconsin.
