Tonight, the Wauwatosa Police are investigating a shooting incident that occurred at Mayfair Mall, 2500 N. Mayfair Rd.

On November, 20, 2020, at approximately 2:50 pm, Wauwatosa Police Dispatch received 911 calls reporting a shooting incident at Mayfair Mall near the northwest entrance to Macy’s. Wauwatosa Police officers and Wauwatosa Fire Department personnel responded. When emergency personnel arrived, the shooter was no longer at the scene. Seven injured adults and one injured teenager were transported to the hospital by Wauwatosa Fire. The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.

Numerous law enforcement agencies are assisting with clearing the Mayfair Mall property. Those who are seeking to reunify with anyone who was at Mayfair Mall should go to the reunification area, located at the At Home store, 3201 N. Mayfair Rd.

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 the 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, and 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.
