Five people are dead after a shooting at the MolsonCoors headquarters in Milwaukee on Wednesday, police said.

A large police presence was on scene at the beer company's MillerCoors campus and in a statement on Twitter, the Milwaukee Police Department asked people to stay clear of the area. Five employees of the "old Miller brewery" were killed in shooting but were not identified, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said.

The shooter, a 51-year-old Milwaukee man, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the chief said. A motive was not given.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said on Twitter that it was responding to an active shooting at the MillerCoors building. Milwaukee police said about an hour later that there was no longer an active threat.

A number of schools and businesses in the surrounding area were on lockdown as authorities responded to the incident, according to NBC affiliate WTMJ.

MolsonCoors, which owns both the Coors and Miller beer brands, said it was aware of an active situation at its Milwaukee facility and was working with authorities.
