MADISON, Wis. — Governor Tony Evers has ordered flags in Wisconsin to half-staff Thursday to honor the victims of Wednesday’s shooting on the Molson Coors campus.

The order is effective immediately for all US and Wisconsin flags and will be in place until sunset.

Five people were killed in a shooting Wednesday afternoon near Molson Coors’ Milwaukee campus, officials said.

The Milwaukee Police Department said in a news conference Wednesday night that the suspected shooter was a 51-year-old Milwaukee man who was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
