The Milwaukee Dancing Grannies, a group of grandmothers who meet weekly to practice dance routines for year round parades, said its members are among the fatalities.

Police released the names of those killed, including Virginia Sorenson, 79, LeAnna Owen, 71, Tamara Durand, 52, and Wilhelm Hospel, 81, who were all part of the Dancing Grannies group. Hospel helped the group.
