Active shooter reported at Mayfair mall, 8 injured and taken to hospital
A police officer at the front entrance of Froedtert Hospital said eight patients from the shooting at Mayfair mall have been transported there.
A gunman opened fire at Mayfair mall in Wauwatosa Friday afternoon, wounding seven adults and one teenager, officials said.
Witnesses described the shooter as a white male in his 20s or 30s, Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said at a news conference just before 6 p.m.
Investigators are working to determine the shooter's identity and have not said anything about what may have prompted the shooting.
"When emergency personnel arrived, the shooter was no longer at the scene," Weber said.
Asked if the shooter was still in the mall, the chief replied: "We don't know that."
"The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time," Weber said of the victims. "Everybody was alive at that time, though, so there's not been any fatalities that I'm aware of."
