Eight people were injured in a shooting at a Wisconsin mall, and local police are still searching for suspects.

The incident took place at 2:50 pm local time at Mayfair Mall in Wawatosa. When the police arrived soon after, the suspect ran away and escaped.

Seven adults and a teenager were injured, but none of their injuries were life-threatening, Vavatosa police chief Barry Weber said.

Vavatosa police said the preliminary investigation led them to believe that the incident was not random, but the result of a walkout.

Police said the suspect was a white man in his 20s or 30s, but they have not yet identified his identity.

Police said the current information surrounding the defendant’s identity was incorrect.

Shoppers and workers sought refuge inside the mall when the shooting happened.

Shopper Jill Woolley told a local news station she was with her 79-year-old mother when the shooting happened.

“I knew it was a shooting, and they were coming one after the other,” Woolly told the CBS affiliate WDJT. “We fell to the floor.”

“I think we were all born into it,” she said. “We are all subject to public shooting like this. I think we have all wondered what we would do in a situation like this. ”

“We are disappointed and angry that our guests and tenants have been subjected to this violent incident today,” said Brookfield Properties, a mall-based company.

Brookfield Properties would like to thank the police for handling the situation and will continue to cooperate with the investigation.
