Multiple People Shot at Wisconsin Mall
Massive police response to a shooting at a shopping mall just outside of Milwaukee.
About 3 PM this afternoon multiple people were shot inside the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, which is a suburb of Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that there are over 40 law enforcement vehicles at the mall including police in tactical response gear.
Dennis McBride, the Mayor of Wauwatosa, tells CBS58 that none of the victims appear to have life-threatening gunshot wounds, so that is great news.
One witness says she heard about 8-10 shots just outside of the Macy's store in the mall.
Mall patrons and workers were locking down stores and hiding in back rooms waiting for law enforcement to arrive. Below is some customers sheltering in a PINK store.
The Milwaukee FBI office says that they are responding to the scene to support local law enforcement. Officials will give an update on the situation at 5:45 PM.
CBS Chicago says that the suspect in the shooting is still at large.
According to Madison.com, a 15-year-old has been arrested in the shooting that injured 8 people. Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said that the shooting happened after an altercation between two groups. 4 innocent by standers were shot in the incident.
