WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) – Police in Wisconsin say that eight people were injured in a shooting Friday at a suburban Milwaukee mall and that they are still seeking the suspect.

Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber gave no motive for the attack at Mayfair Mall in a brief update about three hours after the 2:50 p.m. attack. He said the extent of injuries to the eight – seven adults and one teenager – was unknown, but all were alive.

He said the shooter was “no longer at the scene.” Weber said based on statements from the wounded, police were seeking a white man in his 20s or 30s and were working to identify the man.

He called the mall an active crime scene and asked people to continue to stay away.
