Several wounded in Mayfair Mall shooting in Wisconsin

Eight people were shot inside of a Macy’s at a shopping mall outside Milwaukee on Friday afternoon — and the suspect remains at large, authorities said Friday night.

The gunman opened fire at the northwest entrance of the Macy’s at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wis. around 2:30 p.m., and when cops arrived, the suspect had fled the scene, Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said during a press conference.

Weber said the victims’ conditions are unknown but that they are being treated at a local hospital. He added the cops are seeking a white man in his 20s or 30s.

Weber didn’t mention a motive for the shooting.

Witness Cecilia Guerrero recalled she took cover inside a store with her sister and four employees.

“It was very terrifying,” Guerrero she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“I was very nervous at the beginning when we didn’t know what was going on. But now that I’m safe. It was very freaky and there was some panic.”

Another witness, Samantha Paul, was leaving a store when a stranger grabbed her and warned her there was a shooter outside.

“I was shaking and crying. I am still crying,” Paul told the outlet. “I am so thankful she grabbed me.”

Chief Weber said the scene remained active and that the mall will be closed until further notice.

“We are saddened about the incident tonight at Mayfair Mall, as the safety of Macy’s customers and employees is our top priority,” the company said in a statement.

“We are working closely with the Wauwatosa Police Department and local officials on this investigation and defer all comments about the case to local authorities per policy.”

Officials from the FBI, as well as local law enforcement, responded to the shooting, according to a local NBC affiliate.
