Police arrested a 15-year-old teenager in connection with a shootout in suburban Milwaukee Mall. Eight people were injured in this incident. Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said the incident of abuse occurred on Friday afternoon due to a dispute between two groups. He told that in this incident, four people standing nearby were also shot, but there is no threat to anyone’s life. Currently most people have been discharged from the hospital, but the information of the injured has not been made public.

Investigators said that the suspected teenager had escaped from the mall along with the rest.

The shopkeepers were allowed back to the mall on Sunday.
