Police in Wisconsin say that eight people were injured in a shooting Friday at a suburban Milwaukee mall and that they are still seeking the suspect.

Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber gave no motive for the attack at Mayfair Mall in a brief update about three hours after the 2:50 p.m. incident. He said the extent of injuries to the eight — seven adults and one teenager — was unknown, but all were alive. He added that the shooter was “no longer at the scene.”

Weber said based on statements from the wounded, police were seeking a white man in his 20s or 30s and were working to identify the man. He called the mall an active crime scene and asked people to continue to stay away.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s earlier story follows below.

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) — A shooting at a mall in a suburb of Milwaukee left multiple people with non-life-threatening injuries Friday, according to the city’s mayor.

Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said in an afternoon statement that a suspect remained at large after the shooting at Mayfair Mall, where witnesses told WISN-TV that they had heard what they believed to be eight to 12 gunshots.

WISN reported that at least five people were taken away from the mall on stretchers, at least two of whom were sitting upright and appeared to be conscious. Some people remained in the mall while police searched for a suspect. The station interviewed several people outside the mall who said they had friends sheltering in stores inside.

Jill Wooley was inside Macy’s with her 79-year-old mother when they heard eight to 12 gun shots just outside the store entrance.

“We heard the first shot fired and knew immediately it was a gunshot,” Wooley told CBS58 in Milwaukee. “We both just dropped to the floor.”

Wooley said she didn’t see anyone but the shots were “very close.” She added that they ran in the opposite direction to the basement of the store, where they then hid.

Trish Cox’s 19-year-old nephew works at Finish Line sporting goods store. She said she was worried because the store’s phone wasn’t being answered. She was waiting frantically while FBI agents cleared the mall.

An agent who wouldn’t give his name said the mall was being “methodically” cleared. Heavily armed FBI personnel were visible at the mall.

Mall operator Brookfield Properties said in a statement they were “disheartened and angered that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today.” They declined further comment.

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. Police said Cole was fleeing from police; Mensah, who is also Black, said he shot Cole because Cole pointed a gun at him. The mall was the target of sporadic protests over several months in the wake of the shooting.

The Milwaukee County district attorney declined to file charges against Mensah, but the city this week agreed to a separation agreement in which Mensah will be paid at least $130,000 to leave the force.

    If the shooter was a “person of color,” this incident will be memory-hold by the MSM.

    1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      Says shooter was a WHITE MALE MID 20S EARLY 30S….

      1. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

        Funny thing: I seem to recall the media claiming that about the DC Sniper before he was caught. The FBI even put out a profile on him as a 20’s to 30-something white male. Who did they catch? Two black males in a homosexual relationship.

        The “20’s to 30’s-something white male” is what the FBI has taught law enforcement to suspect for all shooters at large, so when some chirpy reporter(ette) is clamoring for some answer to “who do you suspect” out of these yahoos in law enforcement, that’s the pat answer they give – because that’s what FBI profilers have peddled for years.

        1. avatar tdiinva says:

          The police stopped Malveaux and Mohammed multiple times but because they didn’t fit the profile they were free to go

          To be fair to the FBI once FBI analyst Linda Franklin was shot the Bureau went to work and rapidly identified the pair. They were actually spotted and blocked in by truckers at a Maryland interstate rest stop who then called the police.

        2. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          OR… Somebody in that mass of fucking people he was shooting at might have actually SEEN the guy and gave the cops a DESCRIPTION…..

        3. avatar tdiinva says:

          That’s a real possibility Maxx but during the referenced DC shooting spree witnesses kept seeing a white van. What ever the physical description of shooter really is he had disappeared for now. Either this was quasi professional job or we may be looking at a new kind of spree CD shooter

      2. avatar A Landmesser says:

        Really, guess that’s why the national media is burying the story. Because they always do that when the shooter is a certain tint.

    2. avatar Mark N. says:

      No such luck. Instead this will make the national news as a basis for new gun restrictions and a ban of “assault weapons” (no matter what the shooter used) by the Biden Administration.

      Another WAG: this is not the typical “mass shooter” event when someone goes postal and shoots up the mall. No one is dead, not very many shots were fired, and the gunman did not wait for the cops to show up so he could commit suicide by cop. Instead, I suspect that at least one of the injured knows the shooter and that this was a personal beef.

      1. avatar GunnyGene says:

        It’s already plastered all over the evening news. The MSM sharks are anticipating a feeding frenzy over a WHITE MALE SUPREMACIST MILITIA MEMBER REPUBLICAN WITH AN EVIL WEAPON OF WAR SCREAMING “LONG LIVE THE 2A” as he hosed down the entire mall with a hail of armor piercing hollowpoint incendiary bullets.

        1. avatar Wumingren says:

          People assume “white guy” equals “right-wing white supremacyst,” but maybe he’s a left-wing white Antifa terrorist trying to throw guilt to the other side. With all the hoaxes perpetrated against the Right these days, I automatically first suspect the Left.

        2. avatar Anasshole says:

          Lol

        3. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          as he hosed down the entire mall …. (FULL OF BLACK PEOPLE!!!!!!)… there that fixed it….. White Supremacist Militia Guy doesn’t really fit with JUST the 2A, there has to be a racist component as well, you know, “coming out of the woods with the torches, their eyes glowing red with hate and shouting “KILL, KILLLL, KILLLLLLLLL the BLACK man…. as they pounded flaming crosses into the ground before they headed off to the nearest BLACK church (or Mall in this case) to burn it to the ground”…

    Great just what the dems need

    1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      Depends on what he used… Doesn’t specify gun so probably a 9mm handgun, just guessing but if it had been a scary black rifle it would have been the HEADLINE…..

      1. avatar TheUnspoken says:

        It doesn’t really matter, the left has a standard demand list as they want to get as much power and control as possible by emotion rather than facts. It doesn’t matter if the proposed laws would have prevented this particular incident. They want “common sense” universal background checks, assault weapon ban, red flag laws, magazine limits, age limits, ghost gun bans, whatever they can get while the blood is still fresh.

        1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          And they will get everything they want… The Georgia Senate elections are actually inconsequential since the usual suspects in the Senate already said they will confirm Bidens Cabinet and pretty much anything else he wants.. Who are THEY??? ROMNEY the RED, SHAKEY COLINS and (yeah you know) Bitch Murkowski of Alaska…. Even at 52 /48 Republican majority three turncoats make it 51/49 Democrat win… YEAAAAAHHHHHH…..

        2. avatar tdiinva says:

          It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster so Georgia is important. You people ought to read up on the rules used in both Houses of Congress.

          I remember when the armed intelligentsia demans the filibuster be killed to pass national reciprocity.

        3. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          every two years, when the Senate’s newly elected members take their seats. During this time, only 51 senators (or 50 senators plus the vice president) are needed to change the filibuster’s 60-vote threshold, eliminate the 30 hours of delay that the minority is allowed to demand between a successful cloture vote and a final vote on a filibustered bill, or even eliminate the filibuster entirely…. Any questions??? Could be that others here could use a lesson or two in Congressional procedures….

        5. avatar Anymouse says:

          The Senate Majority Leader schedules the votes. If 99 Senators would vote for a bill or nominee, it won’t pass if it’s never brought to the floor. Similarly, nominees and bills need to go through committees first, and the majority party picks committee chairs, who schedule the committee’s time. If Republicans keep the majority, Judiciary nominees would need to get by Lindsay Graham. If Dems take over, the Feinstein, Leahy, or Durbin would speed the nominees through.

        6. avatar tdiinva says:

          And you Mitch McConnell or any Republican is going to end the filibuster?

          “It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster so Georgia is important. You people ought to read up on the rules used in both Houses of Congress.”

          TD, the vice-president breaks ties in the Senate. Those who control the Senate set the rules like the number of votes for filibusters. It’s in that rule-book you referenced.

          During Obama’s second administration, he got very frustrated Republicans refused to confirm his federal judge picks, so Harry Reid changed the Senate rules to a simple majority to confirm judges. We warned him that was a mistake, and it would bite them in the ass. They were cocky because they just *knew* Hillary would win. Surprise, surprise. When she lost, we used it against them to confirm Gorsuch and Kav.

          If they have 50 votes in the Senate, Harris breaks the tie. That is why we had better win one of those 2 Georgia seats in January…

    1. avatar J.Smith says:

      They must have been there because they got a tip there were a bunch of Trump ballots that needed to be secured, just happened to coincide with a shooting they used as cover for action.

      Exactly. No federal crimes or interest, yet for a gang shooting the feds are johnny on the spot when they cant even open investigations into voter fraud or foreign influence in elections. I say defund these ass clowns, along with DHS. We have other better run agencies and departments that could flex and expand and cover the missions they should be doing.

      Being real has always been what it’s all about. The left has ‘real’ problems being ‘real’. Their real goal is control and power to lord over the masses.

      I do agree though that crime, violence, and chaos are the result when Dems are in charge. Largely because they have such a hard time being real.

  17. avatar Kendahl says:

    According to some reports, the shooting was the result of a fight inside the mall. That the shooter’s description is white male in his 20s or 30s doesn’t fit the usual demographic for such incidents.
