Latest: 7 adults, 1 teen shot inside Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa – WDJT

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) — A shooting at Mayfair Mall has left eight people injured and a suspect at large.

Wauwatosa officials said seven adults and one teen were shot. They were transported to local hospitals by the Wauwatosa Fire Department and are expected to survive. 

Police say when they arrived at the mall, the shooter was “no longer at the scene.”

They describe the shooter as a white male, in his 20s or 30s. 

Multiple police agencies, including the FBI, are still conducting a tactical search of Mayfair Mall — the FBI at one point searching the roof.

The police chief says investigators are not yet sure who the shooter is. He says any social media reports are wrong. 

Investigators are working on determining the identity of that suspect. 

Once the suspect has been found, investigators can work on the motive behind this shooting.

Officials were called to the scene around 3 p.m.

A woman who was inside Macy’s told CBS 58 she heard what sounded like eight to 12 gunshots right outside the store. 

Multiple police squads are in the area along with police K9s.
