According to CBS 58, dozens of police cars were at the scene, many outside the Macy’s department store at the mall. 

WISN 12 reports that the majority of victims are ‘down’ near the Macy’s.

At least three victims, including one male, were seen being loaded into Wauwatosa Fire Department ambulances. 

It is believed that the the suspect remains at large and that SWAT teams are currently circling the mall, looking for him or her.

‘Idk what the f**k is happening but i’m sitting in p.f. chang’s and people are RUNNING out of mayfair mall. no one is telling us what’s going on,’ one person tweeted.

‘I am fine. I am away from the area. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE AREA TO ALLOW EMERGENCY PERSONNEL TO GET THROUGH.’  

The Mayfair Mall was the site of a shooting in February 2020, in which police officer, Joseph Mensah, shot and killed 17-year-old Alvin Cole, a black man. 

Police said Cole was fleeing from officers and Mensah, who is also black, shot Cole after the teen 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 $130,00 to leave the force.
