MADISON – Today, eight people were shot at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa. The Wauwatosa Police Department confirmed there were eight people injured – seven adults and one teenager – and there have been no fatalities. Law enforcement is still seeking the suspect at this time.

State Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) and State Senator Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) issued the following statement regarding the incident:

Representative Vining: “I have been closely monitoring the active shooter situation at Mayfair Mall today. I appreciate the work of the first responders, law enforcement, and local officials responding to this situation, and our health care professionals at Froedtert Hospital, and Children’s Wisconsin, who are caring for our gunshot victims.

“My concern is with those injured, their loved ones, and all those exposed to the violence. It is important to understand the psychology of the ripple effect of those injured, and those exposed to violence. These incidents produce trauma that is critical to acknowledge, to address. We need to ensure access to trauma support. The violence doesn’t disappear when the incident concludes.

“The Milwaukee Trauma Response Team is available to support the children and families of those injured, as well as those exposed to the violence. Call this number for support: 414-257-7621. The Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention is available to assist adults and mall personnel who were injured today, as well as those exposed to the violence. Email or call: ovp@milwaukee.gov; Phone: 414-286-5597.”

Senator Kooyenga: “As details continue to come in, one thing is clear: an act of evil has been perpetrated on our community. I join all Tosans in praying for the recovery of those injured and for their loved ones. I thank the Wauwatosa Police for their quick response, and I am confident they will bring the individual responsible for this horrendous crime to justice.”
