They’re saying there was a mass shooting in Wisconsin, done by a young white man, and he’s still on the loose.
They’ve not released any photos of him.
Police are still searching for a man who opened fire at a shopping mall outside Milwaukee Friday afternoon, injuring eight people.
The shooter, a white man in his 20s or 30s, slipped away from the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, after what police said was “an altercation” near an entrance to the Macy’s at the mall. He was gone by the time police arrived on the scene.
“Preliminary investigation has led us to believe that this shooting was not a random act, and was the result of an altercation,” police said, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal reported.
The injured included seven adults and one teenager. The extent of their injuries was unknown, but no fatalities were reported as of late Friday, according to Wisconsin Public Radio.
I don’t know if this is believable.

Maybe it is?
I’m having a hard time believing it.
I’m sure there was a shooting at a mall and so on, but something about what is going on here is not being explained straightforwardly.
If it’s actually a 20s or 30s white man, which would tend to suggest some kind of far-right motivation, then why are they not releasing his name and photo?
There’s zero chance they wouldn’t have photos of him from camera footage at the mall, and if he’s a dangerous shooter on the loose, there is zero reason they wouldn’t release the photos. Even if he’s wearing a mask, there is some kind of footage, which can presumably identify him.
Probably, there would also be photos of his license plate.
Maybe it’s just lazy and stupid cops?
