ANTICIPATED. HERE WE GO. >> TONIGHT THE WAUWATOSA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS INVENTING A SHOOTING INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED AT MAYFAIR MALL, 25 HUNDRED NORTH MAYFAIR ROAD. ON THIS DATE AT 2:50 PM, OUR DISPATCHERS RECEIVED SOME 911 CALLS REPORTING A SHOOTING AT THE MALL NEAR THE NORTHWEST ENTRANCE TO MACY'S. WAUWATOSA POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENT RESPONDED AND EMERGENCY PERSONNEL ARRIVED, THE SHOOTER WAS NO LONGER AT THE SCENE. SEVEN INJURED ARE ADULTS AND ONE INJURED TEENAGER WORDS WERE TRANSPORTED TO THE HOSPITAL BY THE WAUWATOSA FIRE DEPARTMENT. THE EXTENT OF THEIR INJURIES IS UNKNOWN AT THIS TIME. EVERYBODY WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME, THOUGH. SO THERE HAS NOT BEEN A FATALITY THAT I AM AWARE OF. NUMEROUS LAW-ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE ASSISTING WITH CLEARING THE MAYFAIR MALL PROPERTY. THOSE WHO ARE SEEKING TO REUNIFY WITH ANYONE WHO IS AT MAYFAIR MALL SHOULD GO TO THE REUNIFICATION AREA LOCATED AT THE AT-HOME STORE 3201 NORTH MAYFAIR ROAD. PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS FROM WITNESSES INDICATE THAT THE SHOOTER IS A WHITE MALE IN HIS 20'S OR 30'S. INVESTIGATORS ARE WORKING ON DETERMINING THE IDENTITY OF THAT SUSPECT. ANY INFORMATION REPORTING THE SHOOTER'S IDENTITY AT THIS TIME IS FALSE. MAYFAIR MALL REMAINS CLOSED AND WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THE CRIME SCENE IS ACTIVE. WE ASK MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO REMAIN AWAY FROM THE AREA AND BE PATIENT SO THAT OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL MAY SECURE THE SCENE AND INVESTIGATE. OUR PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICE WILL RELEASE ACCURATE INFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. I AM HOPING MAYBE LATER THIS EVENING IF WE HAVE ANY MORE INFORMATION WE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU THEN BUT THAT IS ALL I GOT RIGHT NOW. SO THANK
