Milwaukee shooting: Police responding to ‘very active situation’ at US shopping mall | US News



Police are responding to a “very active situation” amid reports of a series of shootings at a shopping mall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Reports suggest a number of people have been injured in the incident at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.

Photos show a heavy armed police presence at the scene.

The mall was the site of a February shooting in which a police officer, Joseph Mensah, shot and killed Alvin Cole, a black 17-year-old.

Officers claimed Cole was fleeing from police. Mensah, who is also black, said he shot Cole because Cole pointed a gun at him.

The mall has been the target of sporadic protests over several months in the wake of the shooting.
