The unidentified attacker opened fire at a shopping center in the city of Wauwatosa

At least eight people have been injured in a shooting at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. These are seven adults and a teenager who had to be transferred to the hospital. After the incident, which took place at 2:50 p.m. (local time), dozens of police officers and members of the fire department guarded the area. The attacker, according to local authorities, is a man between 20 and 30 years old and remains free, although there are no further details.

A woman, interviewed by CBS, said she heard eight to 12 shots outside the Macy’s store. Wauwatosa police, in a first report, claimed that the mall had to close and asked citizens to use alternate routes. The Milwaukee FBI office went to the area of ​​the shooting.

Last August, Kenosha, Wisconsin was the scene of racial justice protests that ended in violent riots over several days. African-American Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a police officer. During the protests, citizen militias arose asking armed people to put order in the city. Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old Trump supporter, showed up with an assault rifle and killed two people. Rittenhouse was released on Friday after posting a $ 2 million bond.

In the United States there are about 400 million weapons in the hands of a population that does not reach 330 million. Only in the first six months of 2020, 19 million weapons were sold, almost double the number in the same period of the previous year, according to Small Arms Survey. Although it only represents 4.4% of the world’s population, the United States has 46% of the civilian population on its borders who own at least one weapon.
