Police were looking for a suspect after several people were shot at a hair salon near a mall Sunday morning in the Milwaukee area, witnesses and police said.
Multiple ambulances were at the scene near Brookfield Square in Brookfield, about 10 miles west of Milwaukee, NBC station WTMJ of Milwaukee reported. Four people were being treated at Froedtert Memorial Hospital, none of them in critical condition, and three more were expected, Beth Strohbusch, a spokeswoman for the hospital, told NBC News.
No children were believed to have been injured, according to the hospital, which was on lockdown with the gunman at loose.
Witnesses said the shootings happened either at or near the Azana Salon and Spa, across Moorland Road from the mall. Brookfield Square was closed as SWAT team members scoured the area for the shooter.
He was described as an "ethnic" male, 6 feet, 1 inch tall, weighing about 270 pounds, with a bald head and brown eyes. He was believed to be from Brown Deer, about 15 miles north of Milwaukee, and driving a black 2003 Mazda.
NBC News isn't reporting the suspect's name, but court records show that his wife was granted a protective order against him on Oct. 18.
Two workers at the salon said he was the estranged husband of one of their co-workers, a hairstylist. They said they didn't know whether he had left or was still in another part of the building.
