A shooting occurred at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wis. On Friday afternoon, leaving eight people injured.

Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride confirmed the incident, telling ABC News, “Multiple injured victims have and are being transported from the north end of the Macy’s Department Store. None of the victims’ injuries appear to be life threatening. The perpetrator is ‘at-large’ at this time.”
