A 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with Friday’s shooting at a Wisconsin shopping mall, authorities said Sunday. Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said the afternoon attack that sent eight people to the hospital was premeditated, according to Fox News.
Weber said an altercation between two groups resulted in the injury of four “innocent bystanders” at the Mayfair Mall, outside Milwaukee.
The suspect, who was a Milwaukee resident, ran out with other people who were exiting the mall and was arrested Saturday evening during a traffic stop, police said. A firearm was also recovered.
Cops did not release the identity of the suspect, who is much younger than initial reports of a gunman in his 20s or 30s.
Police said most of the victims are recovering and have been released from the hospital.
