Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said in an update that the victims injuries did not seem to be life threatening.

Weber says outgoing Police Officer Joseph Mensah "will be missed" and that he will resign "in good standing" with the department when he leaves his job at the end of the month.

There has been a reported shooting at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin around the Milwaukee area.

The chief continued: "This has been a very challenging year for the police department and for the Wauwatosa community as a whole".

According to the Associated Press, eyewitnesses heard between eight to 12 shots fired inside the mall on Friday afternoon. The station interviewed several people outside the mall who said they had friends sheltering in stores inside. She said she was anxious because the store's phone wasn't being answered.

The Milwaukee County Transit System tweeted that buses to the mall were unable to enter the property due to an "emergency incident".

Video posted to Twitter showed paramedics wheeling people out of the mall on stretchers.

"We are disheartened and angered that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today", Brookfield Properties, Mayfair's Mall property management company, said in a statement.

The chief added that the suspension placed on Mensah in the wake of the fatal shooting of one of those people, Alvin Cole, earlier this year, which sparked protests across the Milwaukee area, has been lifted. Police said Cole was fleeing from police; Mensah, who is also Black, said he shot Cole because Cole pointed a gun at him.
