Wisconsin shooting: 'Multiple people injured' in mass shooting at shopping centre

Wisconsin shooting: 'Multiple people injured' in mass shooting at shopping centre”

Police are on scene after reports of shots fired at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. Earlier in the day, Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride told the Associated Press that multiple people had suffered non-life-threatening injuries, as law enforcement swarmed the area.

A person said she heard gunshots near the food court in the mall.

The FBI and the Milwaukee County Sheriff's office tweeted that their officers were on the scene at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, supporting the "active" response by local police. She added that they ran in the opposite direction to the basement of the store, where they then hid. "That's all they can do right now", Becky Clark told the news station.

The Mayfair Mall is operated by Chicago-based Brookfield Properties.

"It's a developing situation and we are not going to make a statement until we know more", Kahn said.

On Friday, Weber acknowledged those developments but also signaled that Mensah - despite the allegations against him decrying police brutality - would leave on good terms, and wished "him the best in his future endeavors".

The 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 boy. The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office cleared Mensah in the shooting.
