MILWAUKEE (WKOW)Five people were killed in a workplace shooting at the Molson Coors facility in Milwaukee Wednesday.

Workers are now describing the frantic moments they experienced while the shooting unfolded.

One man said he was able to find a place to hide, but even in that moment, he didn't feel safe.

"Stayed right in that office, closed the door. Stayed right there," said Randy Chenoweth, a brewery employee.

When a reporter asked Chenoweth how close the shooter was to him;

"Maybe about 15 to 20 feet between the other side of the walls, but you know bullets can penetrate them," he said.

Molson Coors put out a statement on Twitter saying its employees were the number one priority. Future updates will come out in coordination with police.
