The gunman who killed five co-workers and then took his own life at Milwaukee’s MillerCoors complex had worked there for 17 years and had a long running dispute with another employee.

Anthony N. Ferrill, 51, shot dead his colleagues at the headquarters of the brewing company, now known as Molson Coors Beverage Co., on Wednesday afternoon.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ferrill had worked as an electrician at the company for 17 years, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Sarah Hauer stated in Twitter posts, “The man who opened fire at the Molson Coors plant, killing five co-workers and himself, had been involved in a long-running dispute with a co-worker that boiled over before he started shooting, according to a law enforcement source.”

The report states that the victim Ferrill had been in a long dispute with had complained about Ferrill watching videos on his phone while he was supposed to be working. The same victim and Ferrill had also accused each other of stealing tools or tampering with equipment.

Ferrill had served in the U.S. Coast Guard from 1987 to 1991. After being honorably discharged from the Coast Guard, he worked as an electrician for 20 years.

According to some reports, Ferrill had been fired from his job at the MillerCoors company Wednesday morning. He then returned later in the day, and stormed in with a gun fitted with a silencer, killing five co-workers and then taking his own life.

The Milwaukee Journal provided the following additional details:

About a year ago, the employee said, Ferrill started saying he believed Miller workers were coming into his home, bugging his computer and moving chairs around.

“I was: ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’ We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. Things just started getting weird. But he was dead serious about it,” the co-worker said.
