A mass shooting occurred on Sunday near a mall in Wisconsin, WISN 12 News reports.

The incident took place near Brookfield Square Mall in Brookfield, Wis.

Haughton is still at large.

A hospital spokeswoman told CNN that at least seven people have been shot. According to the AP, four people have been brought to the hospital will non-life threatening injuries. Three more patients are expected at the hospital soon.

No fatalities have been reported.

CNN reports that the shooting may have occurred at the Azana Spa in the area. The shooting may be part of an ongoing domestic dispute, in which someone at the spa was going through a divorce, NBC News reports.

WTMJ, a local radio station, reports that the suspect is still at large. Authorities are searching for a 6-foot-1-inch, 270 pound African-American man with a bald head and brown eyes. He may be driving a 2003 black Mazda Protege with license plate No. 171-KZD.

Medical and emergency personnel have arrived on the scene. The mall, as well as some nearby roads and businesses, have been placed on lockdown.

WISN reports that the FBI is sending staff to help out local authorities.

It was the second mass shooting in Wisconsin this year. Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran and white supremacist, killed six people and injured three others before fatally shooting himself Aug. 5 at a Sikh temple south of Milwaukee.

The shooting at the mall took place less than a mile from where seven people were killed and four wounded on March 12, 2005, when a gunman opened fire at a Living Church of God service held at a hotel.

  1. Outside of war zones, the U.S. is the most dangerous place in the world with over 75,000 shootings a year and over 20,000 deaths by shooting. Even some war zones do not have this type of killing spree going on for anything other than short bursts.

  2. It's a new normal in this country. Welcome to Rhodesia ! EU has warning for it's citizens when they travel to our country, to avoid large public gathering.

  3. Whatever happened to getting divorced without killing anyone? It seems like a lot of people have no coping skills or self control. Especially men. Unfortunately, they are the ones most likely to have guns and think they are the answer to some of life's challenges. Sad to say, but most Americans are not smart and well-adjusted enough to have guns safely. Maybe there should be a test to get a gun permit.

  4. Violence is glorified in America every day. In sport, television dramas, politics, ("bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran), professional wresting...................there are always those who appeal to the dark side of human behavior to make money, get attention, ego gratification, etc. etc. We will never be able to rid ourselves of these people, but we can make it more difficult for them to obtain weapons of mass destruction..........tanks, land mines, mortars, military rifles....ammunition.

  5. I think the CONSTANT violence on TV and in the movies is a major factor. And many video games are nothing but violence.

    It's a sorry situation with tragic results.

  6. violence has always been entertainment, since the beginning of film making... starting with the "Cowboy vs Indian" myths.. and War stories.

  7. The Sikh Temple and now this. All in Wisconsin. If you have to blame anybody, and really only the shooters are to blame, but if you have to, then blame the congressman from Wisconsin Paul Ryan.
