Search continues for gunman who wounded 8 at Wisconsin mall

The shooting took place outside a Macy's department store at the Mayfield Mall in Wauwatosa, a Milwaukee suburb of 47,000 people, according to local authorities.

Wauwatosa police said a press conference would be held later Friday.

Police described him as a white male in his twenties or thirties. While the seriousness of their injuries is not known as yet, the injured have been rushed to hospital.

Multiple people have been shot at a shopping centre in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

Wooley said she didn't see anyone but the shots were "very close".

The incident began just before 3 p.m. on Friday when officers were called for an active shooter situation at the mall, about 7 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

Austin Seybold, 24, said he was locked down in the back room of the Finish Line store in the mall when he saw customers running.

The release said the extent of the victims' injuries is unknown at this time.

Stephanie Sutton, a reporter with the local ABC affiliate, noted that an eyewitness has reported between 8 and 12 gunshots fired. "We both just dropped to the floor".

"I think we're all born with it", she said.

She said she was anxious because the store's phone was not being answered and was frantic as she waited while Federal Bureau of Investigation agents cleared the mall.

An agent who wouldn't give his name said the mall was being "methodically" cleared. An armored vehicle was also spotted outside the mall.

"We are disheartened and angered that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today". They declined further comment. After prosecutors decided not to bring charges against the officer for the shooting, protests hit the city for several days and 28 people were arrested, according to WISN.
