(Reuters) - A suspect was at large after multiple people were wounded in an "active shooter incident" at a suburban shopping mall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Friday.

 

The shooting took place outside a Macy's department store at the Mayfield Mall in Wauwatosa, a Milwaukee suburb of 47,000 people, according to local authorities.

 

Seven adults and one teenager were transported to the hospital, Wauwatosa Chief of Police Barry Weber said in a statement, but the extent of their injuries was unknown.

 

The shooter left the scene by the time emergency responders arrived, Weber said, and remained at large.

 

Police described him as a white male in his twenties or thirties.

 

Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said in a statement earlier Friday none of the injuries appeared life-threatening. He added that 75 police officers were on the scene.

 

Live TV shots on local ABC affiliate WISN12 showed dozens of police vehicles with flashing lights outside Macy's and video posted to Twitter showed paramedics wheeling people out of the mall on stretchers.

 

Several customers interviewed by local media said shoppers and mall employees were locked inside the mall but were safe. One said her sister - a mall employee - heard about 15 shots.

Each incidence has a reference sometimes with comments. It disheartening to read the stories as you begin to understand the reasons. What went wrong?

There’s a correlation in the high concentration of mass shootings on the eastern part of the US (see map previous link) and the ethnicity of the perpetrators (65% is white).

There’s also a link that mass shooting in the US spiked after 2001 (read 9/11).

I think its easier to say americans pre occupation with the right to shoot each other is stupidity personified.

 

The cities with the highest rate of political violence, racism, separatism and highest inequality in salaries are also concentrating a high rate of mass shootings.

A cursory glance at that map rather suggests that the areas with few incidents are the areas where few people live!
