NewsNation Now, Wisconsin — The Wauwatosa police station announced on Sunday that a 15-year-old man was arrested in connection with a shooting at a mall in Wisconsin, injuring seven adults and a teenager.

Barry Chief Weber of the Wauwatosa police said in a statement that the gun had been recovered at the teenage arrest site. Weber said he didn’t publish the photo because the investigation was underway.

The chief provided little detail about the arrest, but said it took place after the 15-year-old left the mall after the shooting on Friday. A Wauwatosa police spokeswoman said he was arrested Saturday night after the execution of the investigation warrant.

Prime Minister Weber said the extent of the injuries to the eight victims was unknown, but all were alive. He added that the shooter was “no longer on the scene” when authorities arrived at Mayfair Mall. Officials said Friday night the shootings were not random but the result of a quarrel.

Wauwatosa police said the dispatcher received the first 911 call to report a shooting at a mall near the entrance to Macy’s around 2:50 pm on Friday. At least 75 executives first responded to the scene. The FBI and ATF’s Milwaukee Field offices also responded to the incident.

At the shooting site in February, Mayfair Mall was shot dead by city police officer Joseph Mencer, a 17-year-old black man, Alvin Cole. Police said Cole had escaped from the police. Mencer, also black, said he shot Cole because Cole pointed his gun at him. Mole has been the target of sporadic protests for several months after being shot.

The Milwaukee District Attorney refused to sue Mencer, but this week the city agreed to a separation agreement that Mencer would be paid at least $ 130,00 to leave the unit.
