(CNN)An "active shooting incident" erupted at a mall near Milwaukee Friday, leaving multiple people wounded, said Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride.

"Multiple injured victims have and are being transported from the north end of the Macy's Department Store," McBride told CNN.

The mayor said "the perpetrator is at-large at this time" and about 75 police officers were on scene at Mayfair Mall.

Police officers in tactical gear were seen entering the mall, and at least five people were carried on stretchers to ambulances, WISN reported.

The city was the site of multiple protests in October following the news that Officer Joseph Mensah, who shot and killed 17-year-old Alvin Cole outside Mayfair Mall in February, would not face criminal charges.

The decision not to charge Mensah sparked protests during a monthslong wave of nationwide demonstrations over how police treat Black people.
