Police are still searching for a man who opened fire at a shopping mall outside Milwaukee Friday afternoon, injuring eight people.
The shooter, a white man in his 20s or 30s, slipped away from the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, after what police said was “an altercation” near an entrance to the Macy’s at the mall. He was gone by the time police arrived on the scene.
“Preliminary investigation has led us to believe that this shooting was not a random act, and was the result of an altercation,” police said, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal reported.
The injured included seven adults and one teenager. The extent of their injuries was unknown, but no fatalities were reported as of late Friday, according to Wisconsin Public Radio.
Investigators were expected to spend the night at the mall, which will be closed Saturday. The FBI Milwaukee office tweeted that it was responding to the incident on Friday.
