A suspect was at large after “several” people were injured in an “active shooting incident” at a suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin, shopping center on Friday, the local mayor said.
The shooting took place at the Mayfield Mall in Wauwatosa, a Milwaukee suburb of 47,000 people. Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said in a statement that none of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.
The gunman was still at large, he said, and 75 police officers were at the scene.
A video posted to Twitter showed paramedics exiting the mall on stretchers.
Live TV shots on local TBEN affiliate WISN12 showed dozens of police vehicles with flashing lights outside a Macy’s department store.
Several customers interviewed by the local TV reporter said that buyers and mall workers were locked inside the mall but safe. One of them said his sister – a mall worker – heard about 15 gunshots.
