There has been a reported shooting at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin around the Milwaukee area. The mall is on lockdown. Here’s what we know about this developing situation. Details are murky, but if there’s one thing that’s clear, it’s that there was chaos on the ground.
1. At Least Six People in Ambulances
At least six people were reportedly put into ambulances, according to WISN. Their condition is unclear.
“It’s a developing situation and we are not going to make a statement until we know more,” spokeswoman Lindsay Kahn, of Mayfair operator Brookfield Properties, told The Associated Press.
A woman in the mall told WISN in a phone interview that she heard at least 10 shots, and it was not clear if there was one gun or more.
2. Multiple Law Enforcement Agencies Investigating While Mall on Lockdown
The incident is on the radar of multiple law enforcement agencies. There is a substantial police presence. Agencies including the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, Wauwatosa Police Department, and Wisconsin National Guard were seen at the mall, according to TMJ4.

3. No Reported Fatalities as of Friday Afternoon
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office says they are not responding to the mall. This would seem to indicate that there are no reported deaths as of Friday afternoon.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s office just said they are *NOT* coming to Mayfair mall. This is important to know, because @mkemedexamine only responds when there is a death investigation.
