There's an active shooter situation in Milwaukee. At the Macy's at the Mayfair Mall a man with an AK47 type weapon shot seven people. He is still at large. The mall has 160 stores. One witness said a friend told her she saw him he was white wearing a black hoodie and beanie. Others reported hearing five to ten shots fired. Fox news affiliate in Milwaukee has been providing coverage.
One reporter mentioned there was a rally for freedom scheduled for tomorrow nearby. It is unknown if the rally is still on, who organized it, expected participants etc. It is also unknown if the shooting and the rally are related in any way.
It is also unknown whether it is related to the election results and disputes.
It is a developing situation.
Former Wauwatosa Sheriff, David Clarke was to be at a MAGA [Trump] supporter rally tomorrow, Saturday. The rally goal was stated to be to "build critical mass for a march on the Supreme Court". Not sure if that means the Wisconsin State Supreme Court or the federal one in Washington.
So now there are more questions with this shooting occurring the day before a MAGA rally at the exact location of the rally particularly with the challenges to the validity if the ballots in Wisconsin.
Is the shooter with Antifa, is he just pissed off at everything and everyone? He chose to start shooting in Macy's, then went out shooting in the mall itself.
The seven victims of the shooting were taken to Froedtert Hospital, a trauma center.
One child taken to Children's Wisconsin Hospital.

violence will never know any end - we’re mostly a good people yes, but incidents like these aren’t really isolated either
I am glad they got him. For a town of 46,000 people they have too much gun violence. I hate to say it is good it was not random because no violence is acceptable, but he apparently had a personal gripe with someone from another group. 100 police and agents caught him Saturday. Pretty good work.
