MULTIPLE PEOPLE were wounded in a shooting near a suburban Milwaukee shopping mall this today, with deputies were still looking for the gunman.
Brookfield police told WTMJ-AM the shooting happened about 11am (5pm Irish time) at a spa near the Brookfield Square Mall.
Calls to police from the AP rang to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department. A woman who answered the phone there said deputies were looking for an active shooter but did not provide any other information.
AFP said police had told reporters they were looking for a black male driving a black Mazda.
Beth Strohbusch, a spokeswoman for Froedtert Memorial Hospital, said four shooting victims were taken there, and three more were expected. She said none of the four already received were in critical condition.
WISN-TV reported police were asking people in the mall’s parking lot to clear out, because they had set up operations there.
Tactical teams were on the scene, as well as numerous fire, ambulance and police vehicles. A medical helicopter also was on the ground.
