A shooting at a mall in a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin has left multiple people with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the city's mayor.

Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride on Friday said a suspect remained at large after the shooting at Mayfair Mall, where witnesses told WISN-TV that they had heard what they believed to be eight to 12 gunshots.

WISN reported that at least five people were taken away from the mall on stretchers, at least two of whom were sitting upright and appeared to be conscious.

Some people remained in the mall while police searched for a suspect. The station interviewed several people outside the mall who said they had friends sheltering in stores inside.

Mall owner Brookfield Properties said in a statement they were "disheartened and angered that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today."

They declined comment further.
