Wisconsin shooting: Active shooter at shopping mall, mayor says

None of the eight victims suffered life-threatening injuries but the gunman was still “at large” according to the mayor of Wauwatosa.

It is not known where or who the shooter is, reported WISN12.

On police radio officers could be heard describing the shooter as a “white male in a grey hoodie.”

The medical examiner has also reportedly not been requested by authorities at the Mayfair Mall, indicating that there are no fatalities.

“The Wauwatosa Police Department is currently involved in an active shooter incident at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa,” said Wauwatosa mayor Dennis McBride.

“Multiple injured victims have and are being transported from the north end of the Macy’s Department Store. 

“None of the victims’ injuries appear to be life threatening. 

“The perpetrator is ‘at-large’ at this time.

“There are approximately 75 police officers on scene at this time. 

Law enforcement has responded from Wauwatosa, Milwaukee, the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office, and State Patrol.

A woman told WISN12 that she was shopping on the second floor of Macy’s when she heard between eight and 12 shots fired.

Another woman said her friend was working in Macy’s when the incident happened.

“They’re very scared. They’re just hiding. That’s all they can do right now,” said Becky Clark.
