Wisconsin mall shooting injuries not life-threatening, mayor says

-

A Wisconsin mayor says multiple people were shot at mall on Friday, but none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.

Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said in a statement that a suspect remains at large after the shooting at Mayfair Mall.

Officers earlier responded to “a very active situation” at the suburban Milwaukee mall, and local media reported several people could be seen being taken away from the building on stretchers.

Witnesses told WISN-TV that they heard what they believed were eight to 12 shots.

WISN-TV reported they had seen five people taken away from the mall on stretchers, at least two of whom were sitting upright and appeared to be conscious.

The Mayfair Mall is operated by Chicago-based Brookfield Properties. Brookfield spokeswoman Lindsay Kahn said she could not provide any details yet.

“It’s a developing situation and we are not going to make a statement until we know more,” Ms Kahn said.

The Mayfair Mall was the site of a February shooting in which a city police officer, Joseph Mensah, shot and killed Alvin Cole, a black 17-year-old.
